ZANDER Diamond has admitted to not feeling wanted at Burton Albion, and is “pretty sure” his time with the club has ended.

The popular defender – whose contract expires this summer – started just eight games for the Brewers this season before switching to Sixfields, where he has helped the Cobblers to a five-game unbeaten run.

While he does not want to reveal the “politics” behind his Pirelli Stadium exit just yet, he says he is much happier under new boss Chris Wilder.

“I’m loving every moment of it,” Diamond said. “Ever since I came into the football club I’ve been made to feel wanted, and that’s not something that was happening at Burton Albion.

“There are a lot of things that happened at Burton that I can’t really talk about, I can’t go into the politics of what dictated my move to Northampton too much.

“I came here to prove something and I’m very happy with the run of results we’ve had.

“We’ve won two, drawn two and had a couple of clean sheets thrown in there.

“I’m happy to be delighted to be out there playing football.

“People can see it’s not a fitness (issue), I’ve played every minute since I’ve been here and I’ve trained in every training session.

“I’m happy enough to be playing and I’d love to say so much more about what’s gone on but I can’t at this moment in time.

“I enjoyed my time at Burton Albion and if it’s to be the end, which I’m pretty sure it will be, then that’s just the way it is.”
