Northampton tie up Quinn transfer
James Quinn
Quinn has vast experience with nine Football League clubs
Northern Ireland international striker James Quinn has completed his free transfer move to Northampton Town.

The 31-year-old, who has won 41 caps, was made available by Peterborough after one season at London Road and has penned a two-year deal at Sixfields.

"I coached him for a short time at West Brom and I have always rated him very highly," Cobblers manager John Gorman told his club's website.

"He learned a lot in Holland and I've always thought he can cause problems."

Quinn has scored 59 league goals in 324 appearances for Birmingham, Blackpool Stockport, West Brom, Notts County, Bristol Rovers, Sheffield Wednesday, Peterborough and Bristol City.

He also had a three-year spell with Dutch side Willem II.

Brentford had expressed an interest in the forward and Bristol City were also thought to be in the running after Quinn's loan spell there last season.

Cheltenham ruled out a move despite being interested in him in 2005.
