The 21-year-old joined Town last summer, signing after impressing then manager Rob Page while on trial.

A product of the Tottenham Hotspur academy, Sonupe has made only a handful of first team appearances for the Cobblers, with two starts and one substitute appearance in the Checkatrade Trophy, and coming on once as a substitute in Sky Bet League One.

“It makes sense for Emmanuel to go out and play first team football,” said Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh.

“His chances here have been limited and this opportunity has arisen.

“This move will benefit him, and hopefully he can help Kidderminster in their quest to win promotion. We wish him well.”

Sonupe, who started and scored in the Cobblers reserve team’s 3-0 friendly win over Peterborough United on Tuesday, joins a Harriers team currently second in the Vanarama National League North, although Aggborough club are likely to have to settle for a place in the play-offs as they are nine points adrift of leaders AFC Fylde with just eight matches remaining.

Sonupe’s contract at Sixfields runs out in the summer.
