National League leaders Forest Green Rovers have signed former Northampton Town midfielder Darren Carter on a deal until the end of the season.
The 31-year-old was a free agent after being released by the Cobblers in May after two years at Sixfields.
Carter made his debut for Forest Green in Tuesday's 2-2 draw with local rivals Cheltenham at The New Lawn.
He began his career with Birmingham City and his other clubs have included West Brom and Preston.
