Northampton Town confirmed two new signings on transfer deadline day, as they signed striker Marvin Sordell and defender Charlie Goode.

Sordell, 27, has signed on loan for the rest of the season from Carabao Cup semi-finalists Burton Albion.

Meanwhile, Goode, 23, has made a loan deal for the rest of the season from Burton’s League One rivals Scunthorpe United.

Goode was the first arrival to be confirmed chronologically, with the defender making the move from Lincolnshire.

In all, he has made 85 appearances for the Iron, of which 25 have come this season.

The Cobblers manager Keith Curle told the club’s official website, “I felt we needed to add a central defender.

“I met him on Wednesday and we feel this is a good move for both parties. Charlie has a lot of EFL experience, he is a right footed central defender and I think he will come in and help improve us.

“He is a dominant defender who can play on the right side in a two or in a three or in the middle of a three and he has a good range of passing.”

Sordell’s arrival was confirmed shortly before the deadline shut at 11pm.

The striker began his career in the Championship for Watford, and has also played for Bolton, Charlton, Coventry and Colchester before joining Burton at the start of the January 2017 window.

Sordell also played for England at U20 and U21 level, and was also a player capped for the Great Britain team assembled for the 2012 Olympics in London.

Curle added, “He is an experienced striker and just the sort of player we were looking to add to the squad.

“He is a good age, he has a fantastic pedigree having played a lot of football at Championship level, he has good quality, his movement is excellent and he has shown throughout his career he can score goals at every level.”

Goode and Sordell made it five new faces at the PTS Academy Stadium, following the previously arranged deals to sign George Cox, Joe Powell and Timi Elsnik.

The club’s only outgoing confirmed on deadline day was the defender Joe Bunney, who returned after the end of a loan to Blackpool but immediately went back out on loan to the Seasiders’ fellow League One outfit Rochdale, who he joined Northampton from a year ago.

Northampton also confirmed yesterday defender Hakeem Odoffin has left the club on a permanent deal to join Scottish side Livingston.

The duo follow Kevin van Veen, Yaser Kasim, Matt Crooks and Billy Waters out of the club in the January window, with the first 3 leaving on permanent deals and Waters leaving on loan to his former club Cheltenham.
