Latest Swindon Town Rumours




11 Aug 2014 09:43:05
Coventry City have had a bid rejected for Swindon Town striker Michael Smith. Having only joined the club in January, scoring 10 in 21 appearances, Swindon are not keen on selling their star man.


13 Aug 2014 17:07:24
No way we will sell Smith to Coventry he's only been with us a few months plus we paid 200k for him and any derisory offer from Coventry will be rejected and with all due respect why go to a club like coventry who are in total disarray no ground etc. If we sold him we would be left without a goalscorer and why would we do that. By the way the Coventry fans saying were skint well were not we've reduced our playing budget which was ridiculous and brought in good young technical players as Coventry know from last season having beaten them twice.
Smith is not for sale and is enjoying his football with us as our style of play is suited to his game which may not necessarily be the same at Coventry. Yes your a bigger club than us but get a ground first.


@ Misfit for one you are skint m8 and we're talking about Smith transfer not oh we beat you twice last season which at your ground u were lucky with us taking lead then hitting post twice so don't make it sound like you destroyed us as Cooper even said best team we've played this season and admitted were lucky not to lose with all the drama at Coventry nogground etc we'll always be a much bigger club than Swindon after all its just a little village we're a city and we'll be back mark my words


Gone a little off track, STFC does have money but not to throw around 4-500k Luongo Smith 200k. Cov haven't got a ground let alone that money, I think all that has happened is that SP has asked how much it would take to prise him away, my guess would be at least 500k, however as we've seen when STFC won't sell, they won't sell.

If he's got 15 by Christmas he'll be looking at a better team so I'd say you could not Inc Cov. Championship I'd say he'd go for 700k+


@adi what are you on we outplayed you at Northampton and we beat you twice last season. Mark Cooper is clueless and doesn't know what he is talking about most of the time. Remember James Collins a fan of your club celebrating for us when we beat you once again

Swindon could afford that.

The first of the new additions is likely to be announced on Monday, following successful talks last week.

Peterborough United are tracking the availability of Swindon Town right-back Nathan Thompson.


09 Jul 2014 18:07:26
this was on our site today if true Peterborough would not be a good move for Thompson there are far better clubs than them to play for and if I was in his shoes it wouldn't excite me moving there. Smaller crowds than us, don't rate Fergie as a manager and over rated.


If a championship club doesn't come in then he has a choice of Swindon or another promotion candidate, I'm sure a shot at the championship ranks much higher than the gate of a club

Posh are moving forward 2 sides of ground now almost done, and plans being finalised for the third size

A strong recent history of developing players who have gone on to big championship or premier league clubs, this should excite a player if he is aware of our record, and our policy to give younger players a chance and has no championship options

DF still has much to learn, but the players seem to rave about him and the football philosophy, we have sunk over a million into new training facilities starting from this season, and are starting to get academy players moving towards the first team

Any player willing to put long term prospects and getting games ahead of wages is likely to consider the move a step up, it's not all just about division and gate.


Also we have Ajose who did well for you, who is deemed non-essential/on too much money to retain to help meet the fee




06 Jul 2014 18:51:19
Swindon Town are in talks with Southampton about signing Jack Stephens on a season long loan following a successful loan with Swindon towards the end of last season.




03 Jul 2014 09:35:19
Southend are looking to take Swindon Winger Tijane Reis on loan to Roots Hall this season.




03 Jul 2014 01:51:11
Bradford City are, once again, weighing up a move for Swindon's Paul Benson. The striker was a target a couple of seasons ago, but weren't prepared to pay a six figure transfer fee for him, on top of significant wages. This after he had undertaken a medical.

It is understood that Benson will choose from Luton, where he had a very successful spell on loan last season and Bradford. Swindon will cancel his contract if he can agree a deal elsewhere.

Benjamin Balance

He's already signed permanently for Luton


03 Jul 2014 12:35:54
Benson has not signed for any club


Benson has signed for Luton it was announced by Swindon during his loan as he was no longer wanted


Benson is still currently a free agent. Luton were favourites to sign him permanently after a successful loan spell, but interest from other clubs may change this.

If you look at Luton's own website, no permanent deal has yet been agreed with Benson and this has prompted Parkinson to make his own enquiries.

Benjamin Balance



02 Jul 2014 11:39:00
Swindon striker Andy Williams is the focus of Scunthorpe, he is available for 75k but the wages are high.


Power (chairman) said he wants to keep williams at the club.




30 Jun 2014 20:34:15

He missing from Leeds training because he doesn't play for Leeds you fluffy bunny. He was on loan to them last year. He's having a medical at Ipswich.

Hearing from sources close to Swindon Town that they have offered Alex Pritchard another season long loan. The young spurs midfield man impressed at Town last season but is looking to step up to a new level. League one clubs are interest also a host of championship sides.

To my knowledge, Brentford have been in touch also Watford. League one clubs involve Bristol City and Sheffield United.

Alex Smith released by Swindon in talks with Bristol Rovers


22 Jun 2014 21:31:36
Swindon looking to sell wes our keeper to generate money, also change on the coaching staff, Fraser Digby the goalkeeping coach is no longer the coach, power has given the job to Steve hale, a lad that has never done anything in football or played at a descent level cheap cheap option, what ambition is that, no new signings As we have no money,wes will kick off about this,certain relegation for us this season what a joke,power is trying to keep this under wraps and don't want the press and fans to know as they will respond with negativity .

Swindon Yid

We haven't got any money? Yes, we do and we have plenty to spend and Wes will not leave Swindon as that would be suicidal to our success. Power has worked hard for Swindon to find us new a new sponsorship deal and he has and worth more than the samsung deal for miles. £250,000>£79,000 fraser digby as I have heard is not working for money but is working voluntarrly


24 Jun 2014 07:26:56
Swindon to fight against Leeds over the capture of Andre Blackman, who has spent time at clubs like Dover.


Wake up and smell the coffee Fraser was getting paid, we haven't got a pot to .... in fact, power is looking to off load wes to raise money just look at how many players have gone of which is good balancing the books? How many have come in big fat 0 Steve hale is taking over from Fraser of which wes will not be happy about, a deal was nearly done with Bournemouth last season but fell through, power will sell the club in a years time fact we will struggle this season as he is cutting to many corners with regards wages of which was needed but it will be to much with no quality coming in as we can't afford to pay the wages. no Fraser do you??!

Swindon Yid

28 Jun 2014 10:53:38
Swindon Yid why do you say Wes will be fuming? Do you actually know him?

I would imagine the club can't make any signings until the court case is sorted


Yes, and he will be unhappy with Steve hale coaching him as Fraser has been pushed upstairs to hospitality.

Swindon Yid

28 Jun 2014 17:37:44
When did he tell you this then?

Who says Fraser has been pushed upstairs?


28 Jun 2014 18:04:44
I am inclined to disagree with you, everyone knows Fraser has a lot on his plate and has just taken on a restaurant. I'm sure he wants to focus on that and help the club out commercially.

I'm also sure the powers that be (pardon the pun) will have consulted The manager and goalkeepers about who a suitable replacement would be.


No the pub is for his misses, and the decision with Fraser going upstairs was taken out of his hands, the manager obviously new, wes didn't.
