Swindon are to trial defender Yago Fernandez after he was not offered a deal with Southend United.

12 Jul 2015 18:33:01
Swindon Town are interested in signing Jerome Binnom-Williams on loan until January from Crystal Palace.

08 Jul 2015 20:23:52
Bradford City have joined Leeds andSwindon in the race for connor Goldson from shrewsbury. Bradford also are close to signing like james will be announced in next 48 hours. A central midfielder and a winger and possibly another striker are still on Parkinson's radar, Sanchez watt, Islam feruz and John vela have been mentioned

04 Jul 2015 17:46:13
Swindon are being linked with Ryan Kent and Kevin Stewart from Liverpool.

Stewart would be a perm deal with Kent being a loan

20 Jun 2015 11:44:39
Portsmouth add more players to the list of targets and that is Gillingham winger Jermaine McGlashan, Swindon goalkeeper wes fodringham, released Newcastle striker adam Campbell and shamrock rovers striker Michael drennen.

20 Jun 2015 15:03:45
What nonsense. Foderingham didn't re-sign for us because he wants to play at a higher level - not some has-been club that appears to have learnt nothing from its nosedive from the PL to the pimple on football's backside.

20 Jun 2015 15:30:11
I'm a Middlesbrough fan so I agree with the statement you have just made about Portsmouth but wes fodringham was one of the names mentioned on the list of potential players that Paul Cook would like to bring in to the club as we already know from there recent signings that Portsmouth have brought in players from the higher leagues

20 Jun 2015 20:39:45
I am sure that Wes Foderingham would much prefer to play for Portsmouth rather than Swindon. So much more potential and playing in front of 15,000 fans every other week. Also likely to get a higher wage than at Swindon.

20 Jun 2015 23:53:06
I agree with Pfc1234 bigger club bigger attendance first team football and favourites to win the league

21 Jun 2015 10:17:39
If he goes to Pompey I'll drink my own bath water! He wants to go up in the world not down. Anyhoo odds are he is joining Birmingham.

21 Jun 2015 12:33:10
My money is on Paul Jones retaining the No.1 jersey. Hewill begreat behind a settled defence.

22 Jun 2015 10:38:38
Ha Ha. There is no chance of Wes going to Pompey. He wants Championship football now, not L2 football

23 Jun 2015 15:32:36
I agree , very unlikely that Foderingham will sign for Pompey given his ambitions. However Pompey would rather be a has-been club than a never-was club like Swindon.

25 Jun 2015 12:00:48
So, you agree that the couple of seasons at the top table was well worth almost going bust.

26 Jun 2015 07:22:49
Not at all. Just saying that we have some history unlike Swindon.

26 Jun 2015 14:29:41
No history? You mean like beating Arsenal in the League Cup final at Wembley, beating Roma in the Anglo-Italian Cup and reaching the Premier League. Bury have a more distinguished history than Portsmouth. Anyway, enjoy another season in the basement.

29 Jun 2015 20:40:03
Wes going to Pompey. pull the other one, even with bigger crowds they still have to comply with FFP rules so couldn't offer him more money than Swindon.

I will eat my own poop if he signs for a team lower than the Championship level.

Best laugh I have had all week, Pompey. YOU aren't BIG ANY MORE!

03 Jul 2015 18:37:09

Well Bristol City & Bristol Rovers won't both be playing at home, that's for sure!

15 Jun 2015 10:19:38
they might be playing on different days

15 Jun 2015 13:32:40
What bollix.

Bristol Rovers v Luton

Luton are still in the Conference FFS!

15 Jun 2015 13:42:46
Soon find out won't we

15 Jun 2015 13:43:22
These fixtures are not correct I've just spoken to someone within the press office at the football league and they haven't even been finalised yet.

15 Jun 2015 16:27:39
Cheese = Luton in the conference.Glad you are not in charge of the fixtures.

15 Jun 2015 16:46:39
Cheese. How are Luton still in the Conference?.

They finished 8th in League 2 last year!

15 Jun 2015 17:00:42
Ah, just wishful thinking!

15 Jun 2015 17:30:49
C Palace, Millwall and charlton all 3 south london clubs all playing away on the same day meaning all playing at home on the same day. I don't think so.

15 Jun 2015 18:56:16
Whether these fixtures are correct or not, Luton Town are in League 2 (finished 8th last season).

16 Jun 2015 00:33:00
Derby County and Nottingham Forest wouldn't both be playing at home

16 Jun 2015 10:26:48
Conclusively wrong as proven by fixtures

16 Jun 2015 18:25:41
York and exeter won't both be home at same time. The risks of fans clashing would be immense

16 Jun 2015 20:23:07
Very inaccurate.

18 Jun 2015 10:01:08
I'm guessing your were playing a football themed game of 'Pin the Tail o The Donkey' when you posted this????

11 Jun 2015 06:44:34
Swindon rumoured to have signed Arsenal and England U19 international leftback Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill on a free transfer.

With 8 first team players having left the club and most expecting to be playing in the championship next season. This is expected to be the beginning of another drive, like last season to recruit the most talented of the premier league cast offs.

11 Jun 2015 15:38:39
4 first teamers have left Swindon (only 2 on frees), Foderingham, Williams, Gladwin and Luongo, the rest that were released were not first team players.

As for the rumour, yes that's been confirmed by BOO himself.

14 Jun 2015 13:40:22
Turnbull, Stevens, Foderingham, Williams, Gladwin, Luongo, Toffolo, Thompson, all were first team players some on loan but all now left that makes 8.

08 Jun 2015 22:25:46
Colchester united will sign 3 players this week on free transfers!

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Al Bangura & Lewis Buxton!

Alex Gilbey is also MK Dons' radar & George Moncur looks set to join Swindon Town.

David Fox will also put pen to paper on a new deal at Colchester in the coming weeks!

07 Jun 2015 19:53:13
Plymouth Argyle's Tyler Harvey is interesting clubs in both leagues 1 and 2, Hearing that Swindon and Southend both intrested as well as recently relegated Yeovil. However Yeovil likely to want him to make a decision very soon. Presumably Harvey waiting to find out who the new Argyle manager will be.

09 Jun 2015 13:27:31
maybe banton as well to yeovil, could be a slight possibility

01 Jun 2015 19:43:24
Left-back Joe Mattock is supposedly a player that Pompey boss Paul Cook is keeping an eye on, having been released by Sheffield Wednesday.

The 25 year old had a brief loan spell at Fratton Park in 2012, and would help solve the Blues' full back 'crisis', as currently their are no specialised full backs on the books.

Also, despite an initial bid being turned down by Chesterfield for Gary Roberts, he could well still be on his way to the South Coast. If the former Swindon and Huddersfield midfielder does sign on, Jimmy Ryan is set to quickly follow him in agreeing terms with Portsmouth.

10 Apr 2015 09:55:17
If preston get promoted they will invest 250k and Neil killkenny for swindons midfielder luongo who mark cooper ( swindon boss ) has said may be allowed to leave the club

13 May 2015 15:37:19
He off to villa

17 May 2015 10:38:11
Luongo is valued at £3m and is expected to go to Villa so doubtful any deal with Preston is likely especially as Preston will be in a league below Swindon ;o)

27 May 2015 18:49:32
You got that wrong Swindon are in a lower league than one 4. 0. Longoria is at qpr.
Having a medical

12 May 2015 17:09:31
Wolves are set to raid Swindon Town on completion of the play offs.

12 May 2015 09:39:54
Swindon have agreed to sell Massimo Luongo to Aston Villa for 4 million, in return the club will get several highly rated young players in return.

Ben Gladwin is subject to several bids from Championship clubs, Bristol City are the favourites.

Yasser Kassim is off to wolves and Wes fodderingham is a target for West Brom on a free transfer.

Cardiff city are tracking nathan byrne and Norwich are looking at club captain Nathan Thompson where he could link up with his younger brother who signed for them earlier in the season.

Andy Williams is out of contract and several clubs in the championship want his signature, but if the club go up he will stay at the club.

06 Mar 2015 14:21:42
Swindon are monitoring Shaquille Coulthirst's situation following his recall from Southend United. Swindon have a good relationship with Spurs and are looking in to the possibility of taking Coulthirst on an initial loan.

01 Feb 2015 22:35:28
Fulham striker Hugo Rodellega will join West Brom with Graham Dorrans moving to Craven cottage on loan as part of the deal, leicester City striker Chris Wood will join the cottagers as will Lens AC Midfielder Ciprien & Young aussie Massimo Luongo from Swindon.

A late loan bid for former whites CM Steve Sidwell is expected.

02 Feb 2015 00:41:28
Are you now just throwing out anything in the hope of one thing being right?

Unless Brom lose berahino, why would they want Rodellega? He's no better than ideye.

The previous rumours have been way off the mark.

Just because targets are missed & deals fall through doesn't mean they are way off the mark, very naive of you to think such

02 Feb 2015 07:23:37
You've got to find Massimo first.
He's hidden away in Australia, not taking calls.

02 Feb 2015 08:37:44
Its 5 million for Luongo and he's staying until the summer then will decide his future.

02 Feb 2015 09:46:31
Same as swapping Roberts for alli when he's linked with top level premiership clubs. That's not falling through or missed deal. That's baseless speculation

02 Feb 2015 13:25:07
No moves in only out. Khan wants to reduce the squad down. David, Ruiz and Eisfeld out.

You've let yourself down this window bb

Your nativity is hilarious to listen to, if you really knew what was going on at Fulham it would scare u.

Khan hasn't backed Symons as he is selling up in the summer, the above were legitimate targets but SK wouldn't back kit.

05 Feb 2015 07:37:28
Nice typo. I'm not into a Christmas play though.

It's not naive to point out that you are wrong and have been wrong for some time now with your rumours. I find it hilarious that you post, get it wrong and it's other people who are naive. Keep chucking out your rumours though bb, maybe one will stick

I'm not wrong at all, targets are missed by all clubs not just Fulham, SK will sell up in the summer & we will rely on the current squad minus those free to leave to mount a charge for promotion.

It will not happen, why do you think Roberts isn't playing to often? Already a fee agreed with big club - £18m with him coming back on loan.

Only 18m for Roberts?

Yes only 18m upfront but that sum increases dramatically with add ons and such.

23 Feb 2015 21:26:34
poppycok , lol

01 Mar 2015 01:03:34
Roberts said to Kit on Monday "play me more or I'm off" - kits reply " there's the door" - 18m move for Roberts to liverpool in the summer - not poppycock.

28 Jan 2015 22:29:12
Cheltenham Town's move for Newport striker Rene Howe hinges on whether Newport are able to bring in Swindon striker Miles Storey on loan.

20 Jan 2015 20:48:14
A Championship club thought to be Millwall have made an inquiry about Swindon keeper Wes Foderingham and are expected to make a bid next week.

20 Jan 2015 21:01:23
Swindon will let Wes go if wages make the move attractive to the player plus only if Foderingham being loaned back to Swindon for remainder of season.

If wages aren't a marked increase Wes will stay until close season to see what division Swindon are in.

20 Jan 2015 21:13:18
Please no

21 Jan 2015 06:58:51
Why would he go to Millwall who are likely to get relegated and on the decline. Can't see this happening there are better clubs than millwall hat he could go to

21 Jan 2015 08:15:55
Can't see Wes going to millwall who could be relegated and Wes is better with all due respect to millwall than going to a club like that who will always struggle in the championship.
Personally I think he will hold out until the summer.

13 Jan 2015 09:59:04
Looks like Aldershot Town striker Brett Williams is off north of the border with St Mirren and St Johnstone keen to take the hitman.

Troy Deeney of Watford on WBA radara.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.


14 Jan 2015 13:30:38
quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.

14 Jan 2015 15:21:52
Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.

14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.

15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09
Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09

I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?

18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable

07 Jan 2015 21:54:48
brighton are trying to resign striker Jon OBkia for 500,000 from Swindon.

08 Jan 2015 00:54:01
hope not, no better than what we have

07 Jan 2015 13:50:03
AFC Wimbledon centre back Andy Frampton has been ruled out for the rest of the season, and the Dons will look to bolster their squad with two defensive signings.

Wimbledon have offered a permanent deal to Adam Barrett, but the defender, on loan from Gillingham, has two other clubs to choose from, one of those is Southend.

Wimbledon are also looking into the possibility of signing brothers Elliott and Darren Ward from Bournemouth and Swindon Town respectively.
Both players have yet to appear in the Football League this season.

Jake Reeves will sign for AFC Wimbledon, permanently within the next day. He was in attendance at Kingmeadow on Monday, when Wimbledon narrowly lost to Liverpool.

Matt Tubbs has now left the Dons, most likely to join Portsmouth or Bristol Rovers.
Wimbledon hope to have a replacement by next weekend, although manager Neal Ardley has said that he will not be rushed into a decision right away.
Chelsea's Isaiah Brown, who impressed the Dons in a pre-season friendly at Kingsmeadow, and Peterborough's Tyrone Barnett, who did well on loan at Oxford United are the main targets.

However, Wimbledon could tie up a deal for Luton's Lee Angol. The striker, who has League 2 experience, has scored 18 times this season, whilst on loan at Borehamwood in the Conference South. Luton have no need for him at the moment, and a return to Wycombe is unlikely. The midfielder-turned-striker lives just a few miles away from Wimbledon, and could well be on his way to the Dons.

The only reason Elliot Ward hasn't played for Bournemouth this season is because he's been injured but he's fit again now, do not expect him to drop down to league 2 anytime soon

Tyrone Barnett is a good target man, but his salary puts many clubs off taking him.
Little chance of ever playing for us again so the best thing for him is to move away asap.
