Northampton boss Gary Johnson is poised to seal two more new signings this week The Chronicle & Echo believes that former loanee Ben Tozer will return to Sixfields on a permanent basis and will be joined by midfielder Paul Turnbull, impressive for Stockport County last season despite the Hatters' relegation from the Football League. Plymouth-born Tozer made 31 appearances for Northampton in 2010/11 on loan from Newcastle United. The Magpies had snapped him up as a 17-year-old in the January 2008 transfer window with the player saying at the time: "It's a brilliant feeling, it really is a dream come true and it hasn't quite sunk in yet." That move may not have worked out as hoped but Tozer will be a mainstay of the Cobblers side next season as they look to launch a promotion bid. Stockport skipper Turnbull has spent his entire professional career to date at Edgley Park and has been offered a new contract to stay with the club. He became the youngest debutant ever at Stockport when he made his debut against Wrexham at just 16 years and 97 days.
