It has been denied and Silva will now not be registered to play for Leicester until January.

Northampton Town have signed former Nottingham Forest midfielder Lewis McGugan on a short-term deal until January.

The 28-year-old, who has also played for Watford and Sheffield Wednesday, moves to Sixfields on a free transfer.

McGugan has been training with the Cobblers for the past few weeks and has impressed manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

"He is an attacking, creative player who can make chances for others and he offers a goal threat from midfield, which is important for us," Hasselbaink said.

"Lewis has an excellent pedigree from a higher level and he is a good age with a fair amount of experience.

"He will be added to the squad for the Checkatrade Trophy game at Peterborough United on Tuesday."
