Swindon Town have Premier League quartet lined up to sign
SWINDON Town have four players from Premier League clubs lined up to come in on loan as soon as the embargo hanging over the club is lifted.
The Advertiser understands three of the quartet, two of whom are believed to be Tottenham youngsters Dean Parrett and Cristian Ceballos, were ready to sign on with Town earlier this week only for the Football League to fail to allow the Robins flexibility in the transfer market once again.
However, it is understood that the deals for the four are more or less done and will kick into action very quickly after the embargo is removed.
The two other players in questioned remain unidentified but the Adver has learnt that one is a young midfielder and the other an experienced striker, both of whom are currently on the books of top-flight sides.
Swindon are also believed to be considering the possibility of a fifth signing, should they be free to do so, before the emergency loan window closes on March 28.
Senior figures within the club remain hopeful that the embargo will be lifted before the end of the week, after all the teams owed money via outstanding loan fees and transfer instalment payments were recompensed.
Meanwhile, the Adver understands Town are set to announce a deal with an overseas entertainment company which could see the County Ground host six sets of weekend concerts a year.
Artists such as Cheryl Cole and Tulisa are believed to have been lined up in an arrangement that could net the Robins several million pounds over the course of a decade.
