Northampton Town have confirmed that rumours linking former Wednesday striker Francis Jeffers with a move to Sixfields are ‘cobblers’.

The ‘fox in the box’, who was told to find a new club by Owls boss Alan Irvine, had been linked with the League Two club earlier this week.

But Northampton chairman David Cardoza has denied the links, telling the Northampton Chronicle: ‘I don’t know anything about it. I was quite surprised to read it in one of the papers. It was news to me.’

‘There’s nothing it in whatsoever. You might see more players like that coming down to this level this summer, though.’

The former Arsenal and Everton man failed to secure a new contract at Hillsborough following a frustrating three years in the famous blue and white stripes.
