Mansfield Town have accepted a bid from Northampton Town for Lee Williamson.

The move will go through, pending a medical, after a protracted pursuit by Cobblers boss Colin Calderwood.

"We've accepted an undisclosed offer for Lee from Northampton," confirmed Field Mill manager Keith Curle.

"They first started to enquire about Lee during the summer break and, with it being increasingly difficult for him to get regular first team football at this football club, we've accepted Colin Calderwood's offer."

The Derby-born player was sent off at Oxford United during a 1-0 defeat last month.
