CAMERON McGeehan has signed for League One side Northampton Town after leaving Colchester United.

The 29-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Cobblers, after rejecting a new contract offer at the U's.

Northampton boss Jon Brady told the club's website: "Cam is another player who really suits our style.


"He has had a lot of interest in his services this summer from a number of clubs and there has been a fair bit of media speculation about his future and I am delighted we have been able to bring him to Sixfields.

"Cam is an attacking midfielder who is very competitive, he sets the tempo high and he plays with a lot of energy and power.

"He works well both on and off the ball and we think he is a really good fit for us.

"He has the pedigree of playing at a number of different levels and he has a quality about his play that I think supporters will enjoy watching.

"We believe Cam can be a good signing for us, he played a lot of football last season and he is eager to get started with us."


McGeehan finished as Colchester's second-highest scorer last season with ten goals, last season.

The former Luton Town and Barnsley midfielder made 39 league and cup appearances for the U's, after joining them last summer on a one-year deal.

McGeehan was offered a new contract by Colchester, at the end of last season.

However, he will now play in League One next season, after joining Northampton.
