Northampton Town complete loan deal for striker Tyreece Simpson from Huddersfield Town
Northampton Town has announced the signing of Tyreece Simpson on a season-long loan from Huddersfield Town.
Simpson, a 21-year-old striker who stands at 6ft 1, began his career with Ipswich Town, where he made seven appearances.
During his tenure at Ipswich, Simpson experienced a successful loan spell with Swindon Town, netting 11 goals in 30 appearances.
In September 2022, he made a move to Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee and has since featured in 10 matches for the Terriers
Commenting on the new addition to the squad, Northampton Town manager Jon Brady expressed his delight.
“Tyreece is a long time target of ours and we are delighted he is joining us given there is always a lot of interest in him,” said Brady.
Brady also highlighted Simpson’s impressive credentials from his time at Swindon Town, noting, “He is a good age with some good experience, he has the physicality to be a big threat but he is much more than that. He is a striker who knows where the net is, he is mobile, he has the hunger and desire to do well and he fits the profile of players we are looking for.”
Acknowledging Simpson’s positive influence on the pitch and his ability to blend with other attacking players at the club, Brady said, “He has always impressed us, either when playing against us or whenever we have watched him. We said we would be patient to work to secure the signings we wanted and our patience has been rewarded here.”
Brady also praised Simpson’s attitude, stating, “Tyreece has a fantastic attitude, we believe he will be a popular addition to the dressing room and we are very pleased to welcome him as a Cobbler.
