Northampton have signed Ryan Watson on loan from Leicester City.
Boss Chris Wilder has moved to re-sign midfielder Watson, 22, on loan until January 3, 2016. It is his second spell at the club, having previously made five appearances in 2014/15 before suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury.
After returning to Sixfields, Watson told the Cobblers Player: "I'm delighted really. I am just looking forward to getting some games and get going again. I've been recovering from my injury and I was obviously excited to come back.
"I loved it last time, it was a good experience. Things didn't end well with the injury but I am happy to be back. It's what I need, to build my confidence back and I missed a lot of football.
"Getting league games now, from my point of view, is what I need and I can't wait."
Watson also had a short spell on loan at Accrington Stanley in the 2012/13 campaign, making one appearance in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
