Cobblers have completed the permanent signing of Jordan Flores from Hull City on a one-year contract.
The 25-year-old midfield had previously joined on a season-long loan after City’s promotion to the Championship.
However, Flores, who has featured heavily in pre-season, is now a permanent signing.
“All parties were in favour of this and so we have changed the loan to a one year contract,” said manager Jon Brady.
“Jordan has settled in well in pre-season and this gives both him and us the certainty he will be with us for the season.
“We always prefer, where possible, to have players on a permanent contract with the club and we are pleased to have secured Jordan’s services on a more permanent basis.”
