Northampton Town have signed Leicester City midfielder Ryan Watson on loan until January.
The 20-year-old joined Leicester a year ago, and has been part of their development squad since.
Northampton Town striker Alex Nicholls has joined League Two strugglers Exeter City on a month's loan.
The 26-year-old has missed the last 22 months after suffering a horrific double leg break, and will hope to get first team football in Devon.
Nicholls signed a new contract with the Cobblers this summer.
Ipswich Town could now be set to keep star striker David McGoldrick after Premier League club Leicester City refused to meet the club's valuation.
Manager Mick McCarthy confirmed over the weekend that a bid had been submitted by the Foxes, but they appear to have now dropped their interest.
It's understood that Town were asking for a fee in the region of £8million for McGoldrick, who scored 16 goals in The Championship last season.
However, Crystal Palace are also reportedly interested in signing the former Nottingham Forest man, although they could move for Leicester's Chris Wood instead.
Northampton Town has signed Bradford City goalkeeper Matt Duke on a two year contract.
Duke played in the Premier League in a seven year stay at Hull City earlier in his career before a switch to Bradford City in August 2011. During his two years at Bradford, Duke played 52 games.
"Matt was always our number one keeping target this summer and I am delighted we have got him," said Northampton Town boss Aidy Boothroyd.
"We have done well to get Matt. We wanted an experienced keeper and Matt fits the bill perfectly."
