Huddersfield's Gary Roberts To Sign For Swindon?

Huddersfield's Gary Roberts To Sign For Swindon?

Swindon Town could be set to secure a major coup by signing free agent winger Gary Roberts who had been at newly promoted Championship side Huddersfield Town last season.

Two sources, The Sun and BBC Radio Wiltshire state that Roberts will join Swindon Town later on this week, and yes when we first saw this we had to pinch ourselves too!

In 2009 Roberts won three of Huddersfield Town`s player of the season awards and will definitely be a better player than Lee Holmes who looked set to sign for Swindon only to join Preston North End two weeks ago.

Should Roberts sign he will inevitably relegate Luke Rooney to the bench but will see Town score goals from midfield, something we were lacking last season.

Fingers cross Paolo pulls this massive signing off!!!
