Defender Akin Odimayo has become Northampton Town's fifth summer signing after joining the club from Swindon.

The 22-year-old has been signed on a two-year deal after a compensation package was agreed between the clubs.

Odimayo developed through the Reading Academy before joining Swindon in August 2020 and has been a regular at The County Ground for two seasons.

"He is a player with the potential to develop and improve further," manager Jon Brady told the club website.

"He is comfortable playing in a back four or five and that is important.

"We are particularly pleased to welcome him to Sixfields as we know there was interest in his services elsewhere."
