Karl Henry is in talks with League Two side Northampton Town, as per a report by Birmingham Live.

The 35-year-old has been looking for a new club since his release from Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers in May.

Henry is now looking set to join Keith Curle’s Northampton in the fourth tier and will bring some valuable experience into their ranks.

The Wolverhampton-born midfielder started his career at Stoke City and rose through the youth ranks there. He went onto play 136 games altogether for the Potters.

Henry then joined his boyhood club Wolves in August 2006 and became a huge player for the Midlands club. He made 272 appearances for the Molinuex side and chipped in with seven goals. He also captained Wolves to promotion to the Premier League in 2009.

After seven seasons with Wolves, Henry moved onto QPR in July 2013 for an undisclosed fee. He was part of Harry Redknapp’s side who were promoted from the Championship in 2014, which was Henry’s first season at the club.

QPR’s time in the top flight was brief and they were relegated in their first campaign back. Henry stayed with them for two more years in the Championship but was released at the end of the 2016/17 season.

Henry then joined Bolton Wanderers in September 2017 and helped them stay up in the second tier under Phil Parkinson last season in his only campaign with the North-West side. He was released in May but is set to make a return to the game in League Two with Northampton Town now.
