Northampton Town have signed former Derby County right-back Josh Lelan on an 12-month contract.

The 20-year-old joined the Rams' youth system at the age of 15, but failed to play a first-team game for the Championship side.

However, he has had loan spells at both Gateshead and Swindon, making a total of nine appearances.

"Josh is mobile and athletic and he can fill in other positions as well," said Cobblers boss Chris Wilder.

"He has a good pedigree, he has had a good grounding with Derby and he has had loan spells at clubs who play a good footballing style," Wilder told the club website.external-link

"We are in talks with a number of players at the moment, we are down the line with talks with a goalkeeper and a central defender, and we are making progress in those talks."
