JOHN Marquis’ has revealed he would like to join Northampton Town when his contract with Millwall expires in the summer.

Marquis joined the League Two side in February on loan until the end of the season and has scored three goals in five games for Chris Wilder’s top-of-the-table Cobblers.

The 23-year-old centre-forward signed a one-year deal with the Lions last summer but made just 11 appearances for Neil Harris’ side this season.

He joined Leyton Orient on loan in October and is now spearheading Northampton’s drive towards League One on his second spell at the club.

Marquis made his debut for Millwall as a 17-year-old in 2009, but he has acknowledged his Lions career could end after this season concludes.

“Well first of all the manager would have to want to keep me, but I’ve really enjoyed my time here,” the 23-year-old told the Northampton Chronicle.

“My time at Millwall has been very static and the next chapter was probably on the cards for me. I would like it to be at Northampton.

“I feel like I fit in quite well here and I’ve played some good football in my career here so you never know.

“It’s down to other people so I’m just going to concentrate on playing and enjoying football again between now and the end of the season and see where it takes me.”
