Town Again Linked With Northampton Keeper
Monday, 27th Jan 2020 16:10

Town are again among a number of clubs being linked with Northampton keeper David Cornell, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

According to Football Insider, the Blues, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers are all considering late moves for the 28-year-old, who was previously mentioned in connection with Town at the start of December.

Born in Waunarlwydd in Wales, Cornell started his career at Swansea during which time he had spells on loan at Port Talbot, Hereford, St Mirren and Portsmouth before moving on to Oldham in the summer of July 2015 having made only one League Cup appearance for the Swans.

In June 2016 he joined Northampton and has made 99 starts and one sub appearance for League Two’s sixth-placed side.

Cornell, who is 5ft 11in tall, could be set for a first senior Wales call-up, having been capped at U17, U19 and U21 levels, given his form this season.

Despite Bartosz Bialkowski’s departure for Millwall on a permanent basis earlier today, the Blues don’t appear in immediate need of another keeper.

Summer signing Tomas Holy is currently deputy to on-loan Wolves man Will Norris, who said last week that he expects to stay with the Blues for the rest of the season.

Town also gave a first senior appearance to current Wales U21 international Adam Przybek in the Trophy earlier in the season, while Harry Wright, son of ex-Blues keeper Richard, might also have made his debut but for injury.

Any need to spend money on a keeper right now if we Have the likes of Holy sitting on a bench?
Why not just get him for free in the summer if he's any good, could always try and sort a pre contract agreement if they are worried that he'll go elsewhere couldn't we?
Seems a strange to me

Feel sorry for Holy. Hasn't done anything wrong and not inferior to Norris as far as I can ser.

Agree that Holy has done nothing to warrant being dropped. Despite our recent run of improved results Holy should be playing. He is our keeper, Norris is a loan player. I'm sure that most supporters feel the sane - and probably the players too. Norris is no better than Holy who must be wondering why he came to Ipswich just to be second string.

If we leave it to the end of the season and him being on a free, wages will probably preclude us. I think we should get him in, apparently a very good keeper. What harm can it do?

Too small, surely.
