So it`s transfer deadline day. Up until yesterday, we were quite excited to see who may be added to the squad. Today we just hope and pray we don`t sell another key member of our squad.

It is clear there will be no permanent signings today at Swindon. Matt Ritchie told the press that he had to be sold for the takeover deal at Town to go through. This would indicate the incoming consortium, do not have the funds to keep the wage bill as it is and have said it will need to be reduced. On that note the Swindon Advertiser says three loan signings could come in should Paolo Di Canio get the thumbs up.

We expect no loan or permanent signings today and maybe one or two to leave the club.

WHO`S GOING?

LEE COX – Linked with a move to Northampton Town and a return to Oxford United.

LUKE ROONEY – Linked with move to Cheltenham Town, however he may get another chance at Swindon following the sale of Matt Ritchie to promotion rivals AFC Bournemouth.

ANDY WILLIAMS – No official offer made yet but Bristol City are interested in the striker.

ADEN FLINT – Often slated by Di Canio this season for his play, could be odd man out to free up wages.

WHO`S COMING?

BRADLEY WRIGHT-PHILLIPS: Linked with 6 month loan deal in The Sun yesterday. Town can`t afford wages though, part of the reason Ritchie was shipped out, doubt this will happen.

GARY MADINE – Sheffield Wednesday Striker was linked during last transfer window, deal fell through at last minute due to injuries at Wednesday.
