Sierra Leone International Idris Kanu has signed for Northampton Town on loan from Peterborough United for the rest of the season.
The 22-year-old Kanu, who was part of the Sierra Leone Africa Cup of Nations squad in Cameroon, is looking for a fresh start.
The attacker played 17 times and scored twice in League 1 in 2020/21 as Peterborough won promotion to the Championship.
Kanu previously spent time with Aldershot and Boreham Wood earlier in his career. Town’s manager Jon Brady says he is pleased to have the forward player to Sixfields.
“Idris is a creative player who is direct, he can travel with the ball and he has pace,” Manager Jon Brady told the clubs website.
“He can be a threat at the top of the pitch or out wide and can play in more than one attacking position with the ability to create chances. Idris can be tricky to handle for defenders and he is an explosive player who can make things happen.
“Over the last 12 months, he has had the experience of both League 1 and the Championship and we think he will prove a good addition for us.”
