Right winger Francis Laurent has signed a deal with the Cobblers until the end of the season from French side FC Compiegne. Laurent was previously with Southend United and made over 50 appearances for the club and scoring nine goals before moving back to his native country last October.
But Samoo has completed the deal and beaten a clutch of clubs who were interested in the pacy wniger. It’s not the striker we’re after but it’s an interesting one for sure. With Kevin Thornton, the current creative spark, sidelined we were certainly in need of a bit of creativity and Laurent could well fit that particular bill.
The deal is subject to international clearance but Laurent should be here by the middle of next week.
