Northampton Town have signed Wolves left-back Jamie Reckord and Peterborough pair Steve Collis and Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi on loan.

All three have agreed deals until the end of the season.

Cobblers boss Gary Johnson signed goalkeeper Collis, 29, and 20-year-old right-back Ofori-Twumasi when he was Posh boss in the summer.

Reckord, 19 on Wednesday, has yet to make a senior appearance for Wolves but has represented England Under-17s.

"Jamie is primarily a left-back and he was very close to joining Swansea on deadline day in January," Johnson told the club website.

"If he does well there is a possibility that we could take him on a season-long loan next year."

Collis played under Johnson at Yeovil and Bristol City but has yet to feature for Posh since joining in August.

I have been impressed with Chris Dunn, but Chris needs competition and needs to battle with Steve

"Steve is a person I know well," added the Cobblers boss.

"He is someone who has been with me before. He plays well, he trains well, he has a great attitude and is a player I can trust.

"I have been impressed with Chris Dunn, but Chris needs competition and needs to battle with Steve for a place in the team."

Ofori-Twumasi, who was released by Chelsea in the summer, has played 16 times in his debut season at London Road.

"Nana can play as a right-back or centre-half and he can also cover in midfield," said Johnson.

"He has got power and pace and we have brought him in with a view to making the move permanent if everything goes well."
