Northampton Town have signed striker Keshi Anderson on loan from Crystal Palace until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old is Justin Edinburgh's first signing since taking over as manager last week.

Anderson caught the eye of Palace after impressing for Bedfordshire non-league side Barton Rovers.

Since his move to Selhurst Park, he has also spent time on loan at Doncaster Rovers and Bolton Wanderers.

Keshi is a lively, mobile forward who is full of energy and who will complement the strikers already here.

I felt we needed a striker who could stretch defences and worry them with speed and movement, and Keshi can do that.

He has a lot of pace and he is a clever footballer, he has knowledge beyond his age and experience and he will do a good job for us.

Norwich City defender Martin Olsson has joined Premier League strugglers Swansea City for an undisclosed fee.

The Canaries have made no secret that they will have to sell players this month in order to bring new faces in, and it's believed that Olsson's departure is worth around £4.5 million.

The Swedish international made 129 for Norwich during his four-year stay at Carrow Road, and recently signed a new contract with the club.

Olsson has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Welsh side who are currently bottom of the Premier League, and a point from safety.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town have signed free agent Jordan Spence on a contract until the end of the season.

He's the second January arrival at Portman Road so far, with Forest Green striker Kieffer Moore joining from Forest Green Rovers over the weekend.

The freezing weather has forced Fakenham racecourse to call off one of its most valuable meetings of the year tomorrow (January 15 2017).

Tens of thousands of pounds in prize money would have been on offer at the Norfolk track, but the forecast of another cold night tonight, and the chance of snow tomorrow morning has forced the course to cancel the meeting.

Northampton Town have appointed former Gillingham boss Justin Edinburgh as their new manager.

The 47-year-old takes over from Rob Page who was sacked earlier this week.

Edinburgh spent the majority of his playing career at Tottenham Hotspur, and has previously managed the likes of Rushden and Diamonds and Newport County.

He was recently dismissed by Gillingham with the club in 17th place in League One at the time.

He's agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract at Sixfields.

We spoke with a lot of managers this week and had a lot of applications, but Justin’s teams have always impressed me with the energy that they play even back to his Rushden days.

I have also spoken to a lot of people in the game and had very positive feedback. He knows how to get results especially when going into clubs.

We have talked a lot today about the squad and he is excited about starting to work with them on Monday. He thinks we have good players, that he knows well, and is confident of winning football matches with this group.

We have also talked about his time at Gillingham and why that ended, and it certainly feels like he has learnt a tremendous amount from that experience which will hopefully be to the benefit of Northampton Town Football Club.

Cambridge United have signed highly-rated Macclesfield Town midfielder Paul Lewis for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has signed a long-term contract at the Cambs Glass Stadium and will boost manager Shaun Derry's options in centre-midfield.

Lewis is the second new arrival in as many days, with left-back Jake Carroll joining from Hartlepool United yesterday.

I'm delighted to make the switch and having looked around the place, it's a nice city and a really great stadium, so I can't wait to get started. I've been at Macclesfield a number of years, enjoyed my time there but this is a really good opportunity to come and improve myself.

It's a chance to join a team making good progress and for me to test myself against better quality players. It will be a different environment but one I'm looking forward to playing a part in.
