Cobblers For Turnbull

Last updated : 11 January 2018 By CNS Sport/AO

Jordan Turnbull has joined Northampton Town.

Coventry City had loaned the central defender to Partick Thistle for the season after he was deemed surplus to requirements but recalled him yesterday in order for the former Swindon Town player to be transferred.

Turnbull has joined Northampton on a two and a half year deal but there is no mention of any fee involved.

"Jordan is a left footed centre back and he will be a good addition to the squad," said manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to Northampton's club website..

"Despite only being 23, he already has an excellent amount of experience under his belt having played more than 150 senior games, a lot of them at this level, and there aren't many players of that age with that level of experience.

"He received an excellent grounding at Southampton, he did really well at Swindon, and he has been in good form for Partick too.

"With Aaron Pierre's injury, a left footed centre back will help to balance us, and even when Aaron is fit, they will provide excellent competition for each other. Jordan can also play left back if required, and that increases our options too.

"We are delighted to welcome Jordan to Sixfields and believe he will prove an excellent addition."
