Calvert-Lewin, 18, who can also play in midfield aswell as his regular position as a striker, will join up with his new team-mates ahead of tomorrow’s League Two opener away at newly promoted Bristol Rovers.

Chris Wilder’s side will undoubtedly be looking at finishing in the higher echelons of Sky Bet League Two, and will surely be vying for a top six spot in the division – and the young striker should give the Cobblers a new, more dynamic attacking option.

The striker came through the youth set-up at Sheffield United and made his first team debut for the League One side towards the end of last season.

The forward spent time on loan at Stalybridge Celtic last season, where he scored six and assisted four goals in just five appearances for the non-league side.

And with the departure of promising youngster Ivan Toney to Newcastle United, manager Chris Wilder was delighted with his latest recruit.

Speaking to the Cobblers official site, Wilder said: “With Ivan gone we were obviously looking to bring in another striker and we’re delighted to have signed Dominic.

“He’s very highly rated at Sheffield United, he’s a great kid and hopefully he can add to what we’ve already got at the top of the pitch.”

The forward had recently signed a new three-year deal with the Blades, keeping him at Bramall Lane until 2019, and the youngster appears to have a promising future ahead of him.
