Cobblers sign Man Utd goalkeeper

Ron-Robert Zieler
Zieler began his career with German side Cologne

Manchester United goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler has joined Northampton Town on loan until January.

The 19-year-old will provide cover for Frank Fielding, who's loan deal from Blackburn Rovers expires in the middle of December.

Town manager Stuart Gray told the club's website: "He is another young player with a fantastic pedigree and we are looking forward to him joining us."

Zieler will go into the squad for Saturday's game with Colchester.

"Under the terms of the loan ruling, Frank Fielding will have to go back to Blackburn after the Scunthorpe game," added Gray.

"We would have been left with only one professional keeper in Chris Dunn and a youth scholar in Paul Walker , so we have taken Ron-Robert in to help us out."
