Northampton Town defender Paul Rodgers has agreed a new one-year contract to stay with the League Two club.

Rodgers joined the Cobblers on a 12-month deal last summer after being released by Premier League title chasers Arsenal.

The 20-year-old has made 27 appearances for Northampton in all competitions this season after also enjoying a loan spell at Sixfields last term.

Manager Ian Sampson, who signed a new three-year contract on Friday, is delighted that Rodgers wants to stay with the Cobblers.

"Paul Rodgers has verbally agreed a new one-year contract which I'm really pleased with and when I offered him the contract he wanted to sign straight away, which was great," Sampson told the club's official website after Saturday's 3-1 win at Port Vale.

"We will get that paperwork done and I think he will be the first to sign."
