Richard O'Donnell Completes Permanent Switch to Northampton Town

Former Saddler Richard O'Donnell has signed for the Saddlers' League One rivals Northampton Town.
Former Walsall goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell has this afternoon signed for the Saddlers' League One rivals Northampton Town on a two-and-a-half year deal after the Cobblers and Rotherham United came to terms on an as yet undisclosed transfer.

O'Donnell, who made over one-hundred first-team appearances over two seasons with the Saddlers, has found first-team football hard to come by since leaving for Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2015. The Sheffield-born stopper would go on to make just twelve appearances for the DW Stadium side before leaving the Latics after just six months when he agreed terms with Bristol City.

Sadly for Richard he was soon on the move once again as he signed for Rotherham United in January 2017 after making just thirty-two appearances for the Robins.

The 29-year-old made just thirteen first-team appearances in just over a year with the Millers and will no doubt welcome the opportunity to secure a spot in the Cobblers' starting eleven.
We wish Richard well as he and his family begin their new adventure in Northampton, but can't help but wonder what might have been...
