Northampton Town have given a second chance to disgraced Leicester City goalkeeper Adam Smith, after he was recently sacked by the Foxes for his involvement in a sex video on their end-of-season tour of Thailand.

The Cobblers have signed the 22-year-old on a two-year-deal, subject to a medical.

Smith joined Leicester City in 2010 and spent five years with the Foxes, but had loan spells with six clubs including Cambridge United and Stevenage.

"I'm aware that this signing will create debate. Adam was involved in an incident at Leicester that was very wrong and he knows that better than anyone.

He paid a price for that, he has apologised and is ashamed of what happened.

He is a very good goalkeeper, and one who needs to be in and around a first team place to push himself forward and I am sure he will prove a good addition."

"This would be a very positive move for the club. I hope supporters recognise that while they might always agree with my decisions, I have always acted in the best interests of the club and I am doing the same again here.

“The deal includes 100% of the company that owns the lease on the land to be redeveloped and is a major investment in Sixfields and Northampton as a whole and benefits the wider community, not just the football club.

How many Premier League appearances Mulumbu has made for West Brom.

The 28-year-old has a wealth of Premier League experience after spending six years at the Hawthorns.

However, he fell out of favour when new manager Tony Pulis took over and was allowed to leave on a free transfer at the end of last season.

Now, the Canaries have moved quickly to snap him up and add to their midfield options.

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

"The fact that we've been able to pick Youssouf up on a free transfer is a fantastic piece of business.

His arrival will add to the competition for places. We have a strong squad with a lot of players that have done well in the Premier League and Youssouf will bring that competition to the squad.

He has vast experience of the Premier League but he's still at a good age. You generally say that a player comes into their peak between 27 and 32, and he's right in the middle of that.

He's another fantastic player to add to an already-strong squad going into the Premier League."
