Northampton have signed former Stoke midfielder Nathaniel Wedderburn on a two-year-deal.

The 18-year-old enjoyed loan spells at Notts County and Hereford before being released by the Potters at the end of the last campaign.

Town boss Ian Sampson said: "Nathaniel is a young player who I think has got a lot of potential. He was outstanding when Hereford beat us at Sixfields last season. I have kept an eye on him since and as soon as I knew he was available I was keen to bring him here."

He added: "He is big and strong and has a good left foot. He gets stuck in and can handle himself well.

"We need a mix of youth and experience but I am particularly keen to bring exciting young players with potential to the club so that they can learn, develop and grow together."
