Last Updated: Mon, 01 Sep 2014 21:41

Northampton have signed defender Ryan Cresswell from Fleetwood for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old former Rotherham and Southend centre-half has agreed a three-year contract at Sixfields.

Cresswell moved to Fleetwood 12 months ago and made 27 appearances for the Cod Army, the last of which came as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 win at Scunthorpe last month.

"I am delighted to sign Ryan," said Cobblers boss Chris Wilder.

"Alan Knill and I have worked with Ryan before. He is a quality defender at this level and a top, top character.

"He is a winner, he has been involved with a lot of teams at the top of this league in his career and he is another player who can help take this club forward.

"He is an excellent age and we have done some fantastic business."
