Northampton Town goalkeeper David Cornell is attracting interest from the Championship.

The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract at the Sixfields Stadium, as per a report by HITC Sport.

Cornell, who is a former Wales Under-21 international, has impressed for the Cobblers three seasons and could earn himself a move higher up the Football League with the way things are going.

The Welsh ‘keeper started his career at local side Swansea City and rose up through the youth ranks at the Liberty Stadium. He made his first and only first-team appearance for the Swans in a League Cup tie against Scunthorpe United in August 2009.

Cornell enjoyed loan spells away from Swansea with the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St Mirren and Portsmouth before he was released at the end of the 2014/15 season.

He subsequently joined Oldham Athletic on a free transfer and made 17 appearances for the Latics in League One in his single campaign at the club.

Cornell was then snapped up by Northampton in 2016 and has been there since. The Cobblers played their football in League One for his first two years at the club but they were relegated in the 2017/18 campaign.

Keith Curle’s side will now face a battle to hold onto their number one in the near future with Championship clubs keeping tabs on Cornell as they look to bag a bargain.
