Northampton Town have signed centre-back Leon Barnett from fellow League One side Bury on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old has moved to Sixfields on a free transfer after making 26 appearances for the Shakers last term.

Ex-Luton, West Brom and Wigan defender Barnett has played more than 300 senior matches and has signed following the departures of Zander Diamond, Gabriel Zakuani and Rod McDonald.

"Northampton are a team going forward," Barnett told BBC Radio Northampton.

"I think (manager Justin Edinburgh) is trying to bring more experience at the back, that physical presence and hopefully I can bring that to the team and help them push up the table."
