Northampton Town have agreed a deal to sign former Sheffield United man Matty Harriott on a free transfer.

The Luton-born midfielder has put pen to paper on a contract that will run until the end of the season.

20-year-old Harriott has been a free agent since his release from Bramall Lane this summer.

Cobblers manager Aidy Boothroyd told the club's official website that the signing of Harriott will help to strengthen the club's midfield options:

"Matty will increase the competition in central midfield.

"He is strong, he can be physical and he has a good engine. He can play as well and he is really hungry and desperate to be given a chance.

"He did well for us in pre-season and I think he will be a good addition."
