Cardiff City, Sheffield United and a number of other clubs are interested in signing Northampton Town’s Paul Anderson according to a report from HITC Sport.
The 28-year-old winger signed for the Cobblers this summer following his release from Bradford City and has become a key player for them following their return to Sky Bet League One. He was one of their best players when they continued that stunning unbeaten run from last season at the start of the year and still remains a positive despite the recent downturn in form. So far this season he has scored six goals and has laid on four assists.
But the problem Northampton have is the deal they currently have with Anderson. Because the winger left Bradford City due to injury reasons more than his ability, he suffered a broken leg which meant he failed to break into the first team, the Cobblers didn’t want to take that much of a risk with this signing so only gave him a one-year deal. Now though that is biting them on the bum because several other teams can sense a bargain as Northampton may not want to risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer.
Leading that race are Cardiff City and Sheffield United. The Bluebirds new boss Neil Warnock has made it no secret he is looking to change his squad a lot during the January transfer window so he can save them from relegation while the Blades are hoping to sign a new winger this window to help them secure promotion. Also believed to be in the race are Wigan Athletic and Scunthorpe United.
