Silva extends Cobblers stay

Northampton Town

Northampton have extended the loan spell of Liverpool winger Toni Silva until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old joined the Cobblers on an initial month-long youth deal last week but impressed as a substitute in the 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.

“We’ve agreed with Liverpool to extend Toni’s loan until the end of the season,” manager Aidy Boothroyd confirmed. “Toni is a fantastic player and he’s got an awful lot going for him.

“He’s got this great ability to go past people.”
