Northampton Town have snapped up Newcastle United striker JJ Hooper.

Manager Aidy Boothroyd believes 6ft 1in Hooper, 19, has a lot to learn but does have genuine potential.

"JJ is a very talented individual, I expect him to be challenging for a first team place towards the end of the season," he told the club's website.

"We are giving him an opportunity to make a name for himself and to get his career going."
