Cobblers have signed former Tottenham Hotspur player Emmanuel Sonupe after a successful trial period.

Sonupe, who was released by Spurs in June, started in pre-season matches against Wolves and QPR and has continued to train with the Town squad.

And the attacking midfielder has now penned a deal that will keep him at Sixfields until the end of the current campaign.

Cobblers boss Rob Page is happy to have recruited the 20-year-old on a full-time basis and believes the club can help him realise his potential.

“Emmanuel has pedigree behind him having come from Tottenham, and we know there is a young player with potential there,” Page said..

“He is a little raw and is still learning, but he has trained with us every day, we have seen him improve and we think we have something to work with.

“We will work with him, we will develop him and we think he can develop into an asset for us.

“He’s got a fantastic attitude since he started training here and he has fitted in really well.”
