Two arrive on trial
Swindon have confirmed that Ibrahim Atiku and Oliver Risser have linked up with the club and will travel to Italy for pre-season training.

Most recently he was with Greek outfit Ethnikos Piraeus but during his career Atiku has had trials with Manchester United (as a teenager) and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
