Cobblers boss Jon Brady believes new signing Nicke Kabamba will be a good fit for the style of football he wants to implement next season.

Kabamba has signed a two-year contract with Northampton after his release from Kilmarnock last month, becoming Brady's first signing since he was made permanent manager.

"Nicke is a good size and is very mobile," said Brady. "With how we want to play, Nicke can help stretch teams for us with his pace and we think we are signing him at a good age with a good amount of experience under his belt.

"He is also a very good character and that is very important to us. He played with Peter Kioso at Hartlepool, and Peter gave him a very strong reference."
