Northampton Town have signed Arsenal defender Paul Rodgers on a one-month loan deal.
The 19-year-old is highly rated by Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who has played the teenager in this season's Carling Cup.
Wenger has allowed Rodgers to go in search of regular first-team experience and Northampton boss Stuart Gray is delighted to have secured the youngster.
"As you would expect with any player from Arsenal, Paul is a technically very good player," Gray told Northampton's official website.
"He is very quick and powerful and he will benefit from being involved in a first-team squad at this stage in his career.
"He can play in more than one position and he will add to our squad for the next month.
"We have got a proud record of developing our own young players and helping to look after the young players we have borrowed from other clubs.
"I think that is why Arsene Wenger and the staff at Arsenal have been willing to let us borrow Paul. I am grateful to them for that and I am sure Paul will enjoy his time with us."
Meanwhile, Gray admits he is looking for additional signings as Northampton bid to move away from trouble at the wrong end of League One.
"We are still working hard to strengthen the squad further because I still think we are a bit thin on the ground," he concluded.
