HITC Sport understands a number of Championship sides are keeping tabs on Northampton goalkeeper David Cornell.

Northampton Town goalkeeper David Cornell is on the radar of several Championship clubs after impressing so far this season, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Cornell has kept two clean sheets in his last two games and scouts from teams higher up the football pyramid have been making checks on him this season.

Former Wales Under-21 international Cornell made 48 appearances in all competitions for Northampton last season and he has caught the eye again this term with a number of impressive displays.

The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Northampton and his suitors know he could be available for a knockdown price this January or even on a free transfer next summer.

Cornell would fit the bill for clubs looking to bolster their goalkeeping options as at the age of 28 he is reaching his prime and he has the experience of being with Swansea in the Premier League and Championship.

The athletic shot-stopper made only one first-team appearance for Swansea, but he was on the bench for 17 Premier League games and over 50 Championship games for the Welsh club.

Northampton would be reluctant to lose Cornell when the transfer window reopens in January, but they could be forced to cash-in on the keeper rather than risk allowing him to run down his contract.
