Northampton Town have confirmed the signing of striker Josh Eppiah, who has signed on loan from Premier League Leicester City.

The 23-year-old will move to Sixfields for the remainder of the current 2021/22 season.

Eppiah is the fourth signing of the January window, following the loan captures of Chanka Zimba, Tyler Magloire and Idris Kanu.

The Belgian striker has been a regular feature in Leicester’s U23 squad in the last few years, scoring twice in the Papa John’s Trophy in the 2019/20 season. He spent time last season back in his native Belgium, where he played for OH Leuven.

Northampton boss Jon Brady said he was delighted to bring Eppiah to the club. He told the club’s official website that he felt Eppiah would fit in with what they were looking for.

Brady said, “Josh is a powerful striker who is someone we have been monitoring closely.

“He has the attributes we are looking for, he is at the very top end of his age bracket and he has experience of playing both in this country and in the top division in Belgium.

“Our reputation of being a club that helps to develop young players has helped us here, we think Josh can do well for us and in turn we can help Josh.

“We have seen a fair amount of him and we think he will help improve the squad and we are pleased to welcome Josh to Sixfields.”
