Northampton secure Alfei on loan

Northampton have completed the signing of Swansea defender Daniel Alfei on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old came through the academy at the Welsh club and he has had loan spells at Wrexham and Portsmouth. He made 15 appearances in 2013/14 after joining Pompey for the second half of the campaign. Alfei has played just four times for his home-town club but he has also represented his country at youth level, playing more than 30 times in total for Wales up to Under-21 level.

The signing of Alfei comes soon after the Cobblers signed Evan Horwood on a two-year deal.
