Northampton Town have completed the loan signing of Leicester City midfielder Ryan Watson.

The youngster has joined the League Two club until January.

Watson made his first team debut for the Foxes in last week's shock Capital One Cup defeat to Shrewsbury Town.

"Ryan is a player we have tracked since last Christmas.

I have seen him play at least half a dozen times and he has impressed me. He is an all round good midfield player. He gets about the park, he is strong in the tackle and he can pass the ball well. He wants to come and play senior football and that is a really refreshing attitude."

Ipswich Town are reportedly hoping to re-sign former loanee Ryan Tunnicliffe before the transfer deadline.

The former Manchester United man enjoyed a productive loan spell with Town last season, before he was sold to Fulham in the January transfer window.

However, the 21-year-old failed to make an impact at Craven Cottage and Fulham manager Felix Magath could allow him out on loan.

Ipswich would face competition from Championship rivals Blackburn Rovers to land Tunnicliffe.

Northampton Town striker Alex Nicholls has joined League Two strugglers Exeter City on a month's loan.

The 26-year-old has missed the last 22 months after suffering a horrific double leg break, and will hope to get first team football in Devon.

Nicholls signed a new contract with the Cobblers this summer.

"Alex has done wonderfully well to get back to where he is now.

The next stage for him is to be playing regular first team football and this move will give him the opportunity to do that.

Playing regularly will help him, we will monitor his progress closely and we wish him every success in the next few weeks."
