Anderson Joins Northampton On Loan

17 January 2017


Crystal Palace striker Keshi Anderson has joined Northampton Town on loan until the end of the season.

The attacker had spent the first half of this season on loan at Bolton Wanderers, featuring 10 times for the Trotters and scoring once before being recalled by the Eagles earlier this week.

Anderson arrived at Palace two years ago from Barton Rovers after boasting a fine strike-rate in non-league, and after spending time on loan at Doncaster Rovers in 2015 he featured for the Eagles in pre-season before being named on the bench for the first three games of the 2016/17 season.

The 21-year-old links up with Hiram Boateng who also completed a move to the Sixfields Stadium earlier this month, with new boss Justin Edinburgh looking to lift the Cobblers up the League One table from their current 16th position.

"Keshi is a lively, mobile forward who is full of energy and who will complement the strikers already here," said Edinburgh.
 
“I felt we needed a striker who could stretch defences and worry them with speed and movement, and Keshi can so that.
 
"He has already had some experience of League 1 with both Bolton and Doncaster and I know he is highly rated by Crystal Palace who believe he has a big future in the game.
 
"Competition for places meant he perhaps didn't play as often as he may have wished at Bolton, but we have monitored him closely and we are sure he can come in and help us.
 
"He has a lot of pace and he is a clever footballer, he has knowledge beyond his age and experience and he will do a good job for us."
