Nicholls will join Aidy Boothroyd's side on a free transfer and will officially become a Cobblers player on July 1.

The 24-year-old, who can play on the wing or up front, has spent his entire career at Walsall, making more than 200 appearances for the club and scoring 24 goals.

He was offered a new deal to remain at the Banks's Stadium but decided to make the move to Sixfields.

"There were a lot of clubs in for him and I'm delighted we've got him," said Boothroyd. "He is all action and he's extremely fit and extremely quick, we've got a really young talented player with lots of potential.

"He's really ambitious and I'm really excited about working with him. He has played a lot of his football at a level above League Two and has been a regular at that level, and for someone of his age he already has a lot of experience. He is also at an age where he will just get better and better."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
