Midfielder John-Joe O’Toole has elected to turn down an extension to his Northampton Town contract to join Burton Albion.

The midfielder ends his 5 year association with the League Two club and has instead put pen to paper on a 2 year contract with the Brewers in the division above.

Northampton had announced that they had offered O’Toole a further deal when they published their retained list earlier this month, but the midfielder has instead elected to move on to a new team.

O’Toole ends his time with the Cobblers, who he first joined in 2014 from Bristol Rovers.

In all, he made 194 appearances in all competitions for Northampton and scored 35 times. His best scoring campaigns came in the 2015-16 League One promotion and in the 2016-17 season, where he scored 12 in all competitions in each season.

In a statement posted on their website, Northampton Town said, “Everyone at Northampton Town Football Club would like to thank John-Joe O’Toole for his time as a Northampton Town player and wish him every success with his future career.”
