Northampton Town have signed defender Aaron Phillips after he was released by Coventry City.

The 22-year-old right back made 61 appearances for Coventry City, including 26 appearances last season.

Aaron is a very welcome addition to the squad.

He is a young player with potential, but he also has a fair amount of experience in League 1 and that is important.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town Manager

Meanwhile, Cobblers midfielder Danny Rose has rejected a new deal at the club and has decided to sign for Portsmouth instead.
