Northampton Town have confirmed the signing of midfielder Paul Lewis from Tranmere Rovers.

The 26-year-old midfielder has signed a two year contract with the Cobblers. He will move from Merseyside to Northamptonshire on July 1st.

Lewis had a single season with Tranmere, scoring 7 goals in 44 appearances in all competition. Before then, he had made almost 100 appearances in a 3 1/2 year spell with Cambridge United.

He is set to be the third new face with Northampton Town ahead of the 2021-22 season in League Two. This follows the signings of Nicke Kabamba and Mitch Pinnock.

The Northampton manager Jon Brady told the club’s official website that the signing of Lewis fit the bill in what the team were looking to get as they looked to strengthen their midfield.

He said, “We believe Paul will be an excellent signing for us. He fits the bill in terms of what we are looking for in one of our central midfielders.

“He is a good size, a good age, despite being only 26 he already has nearly 250 games under his belt and he played a part in Tranmere reaching the play offs last season.

“He is a goal threat from midfield and he doesn’t mind the physical side of the game. He knows the level, he has a great attitude, he gets around the pitch and he can play at a high tempo, which is what we are looking to do.

“Paul is combative and plays with an edge to his game. He is a well rounded midfield player who can play any role in that part of the pitch but he has that ability to time his run in to the penalty area well and ghost in at the right time to be a goal threat.
