With the incredible season coming to an end and promotion to League One secured at the first time of asking, Paolo Di Canio now has the job of putting together a squad that is capable of performing in League One and maybe even making a push for promotion. These are a few summer targets that I think could if the bill for the Robins next season:
The winger looks to be out of favour at Southampton and has impressed at the County Ground during his loan spell this season. Di Canio hast stated his desire to bring the winger to Swindon on a more permanent basis and I think securing his signature would be a great start to the summer recruitment. If he was snapped up I think he would be excellent signing for a League One side.
The left back, who was also on loan at the County Ground this season, has recently been released by Championship side Barnsley. Di Canio has stated how he wants to keep the 27-year-old defender and he has admitted that if the Robins offered a contract he would take it and I for one would love for him to sign on a permanent deal.
The midfielder has been on loan from Tottenham this season and in the few chances he has had here he has proved just how good a player he is. Di Canio has used in two different positions and he has performed capably well in both of them. I’m not sure a permanent transfer would be likely given his high price tag but a season long loan could be a big possibility.
The talented young Irish midfielder has already been linked with us this summer and according to some media outlets we have already made a bid for him. With a relatively cheap £200k release clause I am sure lots of clubs will be in for 21-year-old Torquay midfielder. He was recently part of the PFA League Two team of the year and his play is one that would fit in well at Swindon.
The Birmingham City striker had been on-loan at Swindon at the start of the campaign where he scored three times in eleven appearances before moving up a division to join Preston North End. If we could get him in the summer I would be very excited as he showed what he could bring to the side during his short time at the County Ground this term.
There are many more names that have been mentioned with summer moves to Swindon but these are the players that I can see being part of the Di Canio’s revolution at the County Ground and I think they will all fit in well at Swindon Town back in League One.
