Northampton Town midfielder Matt Taylor has joined League Two side Swindon Town on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old joined the Cobblers in 2016 but has fallen out of favour under manager Justin Edinburgh.

Taylor has agreed a one-year deal at The County Ground.

We fully understand Matt's wish to play regular first team football and that’s not something we could guarantee.

At this stage of his career, it is perfectly understandable that Matt wants to be playing as often as possible and with the additions we have made to the squad this summer it has probably changed things somewhat.

We said we wouldn't stand in his way if an opportunity came up and that is what has happened, so Matt goes with our thanks and best wishes.

– Justin Edinburgh, Northampton Town manager
