The Cobblers have been linked with a loan move for Swindon Town striker Miles Storey.

A report by the Swindon Link Sport website names Northampton as one of the teams currently tracking the 21-year-old centre-forward, who recently returned to the County Ground from a loan spell at Portsmouth as part of Pompey’s squad-cutting exercise.

Storey was not part of Swindon’s matchday 18-man squad for their home game against Chesterfield at the weekend with the strategy by manager Mark Cooper being to get the player out on loan again.

Clubs in Scotland and fellow Sky Bet League Two team AFC Wimbledon are also competing for the signature of a player who is described as having good pace but being somewhat raw.

Storey scored three times in 13 starts for Portsmouth, although he was often used as a wide attacker and not in his preferred central position.
