Cobblers academy product Hornby, 17, has impressed since breaking into the first-team squad and has gone on to make 14 appearances for Aidy Boothroyd's side.

"Lewis deserves his new contract and we are delighted he will be with us for the next two-and-a-half years," boss Boothroyd told Northampton's official website.

"Just like Dean Snedker, he has made excellent progress and the challenge he has now is to continue to develop. He has already made a good number of appearances for a player so young.

"We are really pleased to have his future sorted out. This is another big pat on the back for our academy, who are producing some excellent young players.

"Young players know that by coming to Northampton Town not only will they receive excellent coaching, but there is a clear pathway through to our first-team squad."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
