Northampton Town have signed centre-back Jordan Turnbull from League Two side Coventry City.

Turnbull has signed a two and a half year contract at Sixfields. The 23-year-old has signed after the defender’s loan with SPL side Partick Thistle was cut short.

The defender’s signing also comes in the absence of Aaron Pierre, after the Northampton centre-back suffered a 3 month injury in the week.

Turnbull’s arrival at Sixfields makes him the fifth January arrival at Northampton Town. He follows the signings of Richard O’Donnell, Shay Facey, Jack Bridge and Hildeberto Pereira in a busy window for the League One strugglers.

Speaking to the official Cobblers website, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said, “Despite only being 23, he already has an excellent amount of experience under his belt having played more than 150 senior games, a lot of them at this level, and there aren’t many players of that age with that level of experience.

“He received an excellent grounding at Southampton, he did really well at Swindon, and he has been in good form for Partick too.

“With Aaron Pierre’s injury, a left footed centre back will help to balance us, and even when Aaron is fit, they will provide excellent competition for each other. Jordan can also play left back if required, and that increases our options too.”

Turnbull began his career with the Southampton academy, and had two loan spells with Swindon Town before making a permanent move to Coventry in the summer of 2016. The defender had initially moved to Scotland on a season long loan with Thistle, but his loan was cut short to facilitate his move to Sixfields.
