Swindon Complete January Signings
Swindon Town have completed the signings of 6 players in January to beef up their squad for the rest of the season. Yado Mambo, 22, had agreed a deal to sign on a free transfer for the Sky Bet League 1 side from Skrill South side Ebbsfleet not long after Costa took over at the helm at Swindon. Mambo, who plays as a Central Defender, has signed a deal until the end of the season worth around £875 per week and will have to work hard to impress in a league three divisions higher than his former club, but his experience from the football league from last seasons should help him succeed. Ryan Fraser, 20, joined on a 3 month loan from Bournemouth, and made 2 appearances grabbing an assist, but had his loan terminated on the 25th of January, 18 days after arriving at the club. Dominic Ball, 18, joined us on a 3 month loan from Tottenham as we needed more strength in the Central Defence department after the the departure of Ward. He can play at Centre Back or at Right Back, which will help with the depth of other positions. Yoann Folly, 28, has joined us until 2015 on a contract worth around £1,800 per week. He can play at Centre Midfield and could really help us in the middle of the park as in my opinion, that's the strongest area of the pitch. Aaron Mokoena, 33, has signed a deal until 2015 and will be earning £3,000 per week. The South Africa international, who is a Centre Back, can be a key player at the heart of defence for us if he is able to find his top form in the league. The last of our January signings is Gary Glen, 23, a Scottish striker who has joined us on a free transfer from Ross County on a deal until 2015 worth around £2,200 per week and could be a key player in our bid to push further up the table, and hopefully will hit the goal trail as soon as possible.
