Marc Leonard has joined Northampton on loan for the season.

We are pleased to confirm that Marc Leonard has signed a new contract, with the midfielder immediately heading out on loan to rejoin Northampton Town for the season.

His new deal runs until June 2025, with a club option for an extra year.

The former Scotland under-21 international spent last season on loan with the Cobblers, where he won automatic promotion to League One.

Technical director David Weir said, “Marc had an excellent loan last season and showed that he can adapt well to a first team environment.

“The next step for him is continuing his development with Northampton, where he can continue to build on what he achieved in the last campaign.”

The 21-year-old joined us in 2018 from Scottish Premiership side Hearts, working his way up our academy before making his first-team debut in August 2021 in the Carabao Cup, as we beat Swansea City 2-0 at The Amex.
