The borough council's audit committee will meet to discuss the procedures followed by the authority when it agreed to hand over the money for the redevelopment of Sixfields.

The loan was not paid back in time and, after new owner Kelvin Thomas bought the club, it was arranged for the debt to be cleared in return for the Cobblers handing over development rights of the land around the stadium.

Southend United have completed the loan signing of West Ham United defender Stephen Hendrie.

He comes here making his English debut, having not played first team football since he left Hamilton Academical.

I spoke to his former manager, Alex Neil, last night about him, to ask about the type character we’re bringing in.

He says he’s a solid character, reliable, got bags of energy and probably his biggest asset will be his legs, as he can run all day."

– Phil Brown, Southend United manager

Godfrey will join the club's academy initially.

"It's massive for me to be given this opportunity and I can't wait to get started.

I'm delighted to get the deal done, and it happening on my birthday makes it extra special. York gave me the platform to kick on so I owe a lot to them, but it's about what happens next now.

Norwich is a huge club and I'm looking forward to developing myself as a player here."
