However, the 17-year-old admits he currently has "nothing to complain about".

The player has become an established member of Aidy Boothroyd's first team this season, making 10 appearances, but remains on a scholarship rather than pro deal at Sixfields.

The Cobblers boss has previously stated he intends to discuss a contract with Hornby, but wishes to keep him on youth terms for the moment to maintain his hunger.

Hornby, whose father played for Burton and Yeovil, told the Northampton Chronicle: "You want to become a footballer, but I've just got to keep working hard and hopefully that will come.

"I've got no complaints. I'm in the side and I'm playing regularly so I have got nothing to complain about at the moment."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
