Northampton Town have announced they have parted company with manager Justin Edinburgh.

In a statement on the club's website Chairman Kelvin Thomas said:

“Justin did a good job for us in difficult circumstances and achieved what was asked of him when he came in last season by retaining our League 1 status, for which we will always be grateful.

“However results overall haven’t gone as well as any of us would have liked, but Justin is an honest and hard working individual and we wish him well for the future."

Edinburgh won just six of his 26 games in charge of the Cobblers, drawing six games and losing 14. He only joined the club in January, taking over from Robert Page.

Northampton are currently bottom of League One and have lost all their matches in the league so far.

Norwich City's latest signing Grant Hanley has described himself as an "old fashioned centre-half".

The Scottish international has signed for an undisclosed fee from Newcastle United on a four-year deal.

He told the club's website "It’s a club with high aspirations and a fresh start for me. As a defender, I’m a bit of an old-fashioned no-nonsense centre-half and you pride yourself on clean sheets. We’ve got work to do on the training ground to improve that."

The Canaries defence has already shipped 15 goals so far this season.

Daniel Farke said: "It was clear to me that while there were some things about the team which are working well, our defensive line needs strengthening. Grant is a quality defender and is not just another option in the defence."
