Midfielder Matt Grimes has signed for Northampton Town on loan from Swansea City until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old is the latest signing in a busy summer at Sixfields, following the free transfer of Luke Coddington from Huddersfield Town yesterday.

Grimes an England U21 international who spent last season on loan at Leeds United but struggled for game time.

Justin Edinburgh told the club’s official website: “We are delighted to welcome a player of Matt’s pedigree to the club.

“He is only a young man but has a good amount of experience and after impressing at Exeter he has played in the Premier League and the Championship.

“His arrival increases the competition for a midfield spot and as well as being a central midfielder he can also play in the number 10 role and he possesses a quality left foot. He is an excellent addition to the squad and we are excited about having him with us for the season ahead.”
