Cooper: No Money For Permanent Signings

Cooper: No Money For Permanent Signings

Swindon Town are pretty much set to "be as they are" following the 2-0 loss to Gillingham over the weekend.

Swindon Town are scouring the loan market for additions including a striker but any permanent new signings won`t be arriving according to manager Mark Cooper.

Cooper has said money is tight and that the club simply don`t have the money to bring in any players and in fact the club are looking to reduce the wage bill further.

Town have a few players coming back from injuries including Tijane Reis and Troy Archibald-Henville however Archibald-Henville will likely play only a bit part this season for Town because if he plays 8 more matches for Town, Swindon are on the hook for a 5 figure sum that needs to be paid to Exeter City as part of a ruling from a tribunal when he signed with the club.

Alan Navarro will retire at the end of the season whilst Andy Williams will also be cut to bring the wage bill down where it needs to be.
