Northampton Town have signed former Swansea City goalkeeper David Cornell on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old Welshman has agreed a two-year at Sixfields.

Cornell has been a free agent since he was released by Oldham Athletic earlier this summer.

He will now compete with Adam Smith for the number one jersey.

David is a good signing for us.

He will come in to challenge and compete with Adam Smith and he has knowledge and experience of playing at this level.

He has a good pedigree and I'm sure he will fit in well in the dressing room.

I think he was unfortunate to have been released by Oldham but hopefully their loss can be our gain.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager

Meanwhile, veteran 'keeper Ryan Clarke has left Northampton to join fellow League One side AFC Wimbledon.

Wenger believes Jamie Vardy will stay at Leicester

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted he expects Jamie Vardy to stay at Leicester.

The Frenchman appears ready for defeat in his chase for the striker after the Gunners triggered his £20million release clause.

Vardy is currently with England at Euro 2016 and scored in their 2-1 win over Wales on Thursday. He has insisted he would not make a decision on his future until after England's involvement in France ended.

But Wenger, in an interview with Chinese TV, said he believes the 28-year-old is ready to remain loyal to last season's shock Premier League champions.

He said: "Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester."

Leicester made a counter offer to Vardy, who only signed his most recent contract until 2019 in February, to try to convince him to stay at the King Power Stadium, although it is understood they could not match Arsenal's deal.
