Northampton Town have finally brought an end to their goalkeeper as they sign Luke Coddington from Huddersfield Town.

The Cobblers have been searching for a stopper to challenge David Cornell all summer but were frustrated in their attempts.

Coddington has now moved to Sixfields on a two year contract from the newly promoted Premier League side.

Manager Justin Edinbugh told the club’s official website: “Luke has hugely impressed us and we are delighted to add him to our squad.

“He is a highly thought of keeper and we think he is an excellent prospect. He has always been on our list this summer, but his availability as a permanent signing this week changed our thinking. We felt a decision had to be made and we didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity of signing Luke, while waiting for some of the other loan options. We wanted to be in control of our own destiny.

“Luke will provide excellent competition for David Cornell and with two weeks of the transfer window left, while the squad is now generally settled, we may still see some movement before the window closes.”
