Northampton defender Jason Crowe has agreed a deal to sign for Leeds.

Crowe, who joined the Cobblers from Grimsby four years ago, is set to move to Elland Road after making nearly 200 appearances for Town. And Northampton manager Stuart Gray was not bitter about his departure.

"We would obviously like to wish Jason all the best," said boss Stuart Gray. "While we did make Jason a very good offer and we would have loved to have kept him at the club, you cannot begrudge him this move.

He added: "He has been a fabulous servant for the club over the last few years and we wish him every success at Leeds.

"Hopefully this move will give him the chance to play Championship football in his time at Elland Road and we thank him for his service and part on excellent terms."
