Swindon Town are hoping to sign Striker Leon Constantine under the noses of Leeds United who are unable to sign players due to their financial situation.

Constantine has been on trial at Leeds United but the Western Daily Press is reporting that Swindon Town are ready to swoop to sign the prolific striker and finally solve their goal scoring woes since the departure of Sam Parkin to Ipswich 2 seasons ago.

Constantine who was previously at Port Vale scored 32 goals in 72 appearances for the League One side between 2005-07.

Constantine had played at Millwall, Brentford, Southend, Peterborough, and Torquay prior to joining Port Vale.

It is understood that Crewe Alexandra are also looking to swoop and sign the player. Swindon will be hoping to convince Constantine that a move to the County Ground would be beneficial to him after Leeds are not able to sign players due to their perilous financial situation at Elland Road.

This would come as a major coupe to Swindon fans to sign such a quality player under the noses of former boss Dennis Wise.

  • be interesting to see where he ends up, us at crewe are confident. wages are likely to be a sticking point. good look for the forthcoming season from all at Crewe Vital.

  • Leon is a good striker and had an excellent 18 months at Vale Park. He got a lot of criticism from fans who felt that he was lazy and didn’t do enough for the team.

  • Would be a great signing, Someone who scored 26 goals last seaosnm can hardly be lazy but in any case each to their own. Vale will miss him this season.
