West Ham midfielder Powell joins Northampton Town on loan

Joe Powell

 

West Ham United midfielder Joe Powell has joined EFL League Two club Northampton Town until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The 20-year-old has been in outstanding form this season, providing two assists on his first-team debut in the 8-0 Carabao Cup third-round win over Macclesfield Town at London Stadium in September. 

The versatile Academy of Football graduate has also excelled at U23 level, scoring seven goals and chalking up six more assists in just 12 Premier League 2 Division 1 appearances.

Powell could make his EFL League Two debut for Keith Curle’s Cobblers in Saturday’s home fixture with Morecambe at Sixfields Stadium on Saturday.

Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Joe all the best for his season-long loan at Northampton.
