Northampton Town have won the race to sign in-demand Cheltenham Town striker Billy Waters.

The 22-year-old was hot property after scoring 16 goals for the Robins last season, and reportedly caught the attention of a number of clubs - including Lincoln City and Plymouth Argyle.

However, the Cobblers have paid an undisclosed fee to ensure he will be a League One player in 2017/18.

Waters has agreed a three-year contract at Sixfields.
