Swindon Town are set to sign Southampton defender Jack Stephens on a season long loan from the Premier League club.

Stephens who transformed the back line after arriving on loan last season is set to return to Wiltshire as part of an agreement between Southampton and Swindon Town.

Stephens will be a welcome addition to the squad as Town only have two centre backs with League experience, Darren Ward who was frozen out at the end of last season and Raphael Rossi Branco.

The player had stated previously that he was happy to return to Swindon should the opportunity arise.
