Will David Be Vaughan Again?

New loan signing David Vaughan is available for selection against his former club after completing a three-month move from Sunderland.

"I have not played as often as I might have liked (for Sunderland) hence me coming out on loan," he told the official NFFC website.

"But I have played a few games for Sunderland and Wales this season, so that should stand me in good stead, when it comes to match fitness."
