League One side Northampton Town have signed young Manchester United defender Regan Poole on a season-long loan.

Poole, 19, moved to Old Trafford in 2015 from Newport County, where he played under current Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh.

But his only United appearance to date was as a late substitute in the Europa League in February 2016.

The Wales Under-21 international comes in as competition for centre-backs Ash Taylor and Leon Barnett.

Edinburgh said: "He is a central defender who is comfortable on the ball. He is strong, he leaps well and he has all the attributes to be a top, top player.

"He is mobile and he will complement the other defenders we have at the club well."
