Northampton Town have signed Swansea City midfielder Matt Grimes on loan until the end of the 2017-18 season.

Grimes, 22, made 12 appearances on loan at Leeds last season, having joined Swansea in 2015 for £1.75m from Exeter.

This is the former England Under-21 international's third loan spell, following a stint at Blackburn in 2016.

"As well as being a central midfielder, he can also play in the number 10 role and he possesses a quality left foot," Cobblers manager Justin Edinburgh said.

"He is only a young man, but has a good amount of experience and after impressing at Exeter he has played in the Premier League and the Championship."
