The former Ajax player was handed a free transfer towards the end of last year by Town boss Joe Royle after he revealed that the Dutchman was surplus to requirements at the club..

The 21 year old will initally spend a month at The Sixfields, and Northampton boss Colin Calderwood is very happy with the deal: "Nabil played against me when I was at Spurs and we have struck a very good deal with Ipswich." he told SkySports.com.

"He will come over and join the squad but he will have to work hard to force his way into the team. All the midfielders are doing well at the moment but he has good pedigree and he can look at us, and we will look at him."
