Northampton Town midfielder Ben Tozer will remain at Sixfields next season after signing a new two-year deal.

The 23-year-old featured in every game last term, including the play-off final defeat by Bradford at Wembley.

"Ben has been a big part of what we have achieved so far and he is invaluable to us," boss Aidy Boothroyd told the club website.external-link

"He is the right character, the right age and he is a player with a very bright future."

Tozer arrived on loan from Newcastle in 2010 before signing permanently two years ago.

Initially a defender, he has been used more regularly in midfield and also offers an attacking threat with his long throw-ins, but his previous contract was due to expire on 1 July.

"He has a lot of experience under his belt, not too many 23-year-olds have played as many games as he has and he is capable of playing in more than position which is a huge attribute to have," added Boothroyd.
