Northampton Town have confirmed the signing of defender Peter Kioso on loan from Luton Town.

The 21-year-old has signed on loan for the remainder of the season from the Championship club.

The Irish born defender joined Luton from Hartlepool United in 2019 and has made 3 appearances for the full Luton first team. He spent the first half of the current season on loan with League Two side Bolton Wanderers, scoring 3 times for them.

The Cobblers’ manager Keith Curle told the club’s official website that Kioso had been a long term target and he was pleased to confirm the signature.

He said, “Peter is a player we have been tracking for some time and have been very impressed by.

“He was on our radar before he went out to Bolton, we monitored his performances there, he did very well for Bolton and has shown excellent progression in his career.

“He has both power and pace, he is a good athlete and he can play in any role down the right hand side as a wing back or a full back.

“He is a threat going forward, he has good defensive qualities too and he will add to our squad.”
