Following his release by Northampton Town, former loan striker Alex Nicholls has now signed an 18 month deal at St James Park.

The 27 year old joins as a free agent on Wednesday officially when his contract is mutually terminated at his previous club, and he has been with us on a second loan spell this season.

In total he has made 13 appearances and scored once, the winner away to Cambridge United back in September, and he also took in ten games with Northampton after his original recall.

With the deal going through on Wednesday he will be eligible to make his permanent club debut when we face Northampton ironically this Saturday.
