SWINDON Town have confirmed the signing of Jonathan Obika from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee.

Obika was pictured at the County Ground this morning having talks and the club have confirmed a deal this afternoon. The fee is thought to be in the region of £200,000 with the striker penning a two-year deal.

Town boss Mark Cooper is expecting a very different player to the one who joined on loan in 2011.

"He's a different to the player that was here a couple of years ago," Cooper told BBC Wiltshire.

"He's a strong, quick forward who can score goals. I really like him and I think he'll do really well.

"He was one we were always keen on getting but there were always Championship clubs after him.

"He felt that's where he should go at the time so we've had to be patient. We've finally got him."

In Obika's previous spell at the County Ground in 2011, he made three starts, two appearances from the bench and scored no goals.

Obika rarely played for Spurs' first team, only pulling on the white shirt four times, but does have a decent record whilst on a series of loan spells. The 23-year-old has scored 25 goals in 69 starts and 66 substitute appearances across his time at Yeovil, Millwall, Crystal Palace, Peterborough, Charlton, Brighton and Swindon.

I seem to remember that Super Sammy Parkin's goalscoring record was less than impressive when he came to the County Ground, and he ended up being one of our legendry heroes.
So dont criticise this lad before he has had a chance to settle down and prove himself.
For my money he is a good signing for the Town, and he will score plenty of goals.

Welcome, I am sure Jon Obika will benefit from being at one club for a while, instead of being loaned to all and sundry, he looked out of his depth last time around, but that was many managers ago, and I am sure MC will get him playing

Jonathan fits our profile: young player, excellent football pedigree, bags of potential and really wants to make a name for himself. The fact this will be his first permanent move away from Spurs speaks volumes. He's sure as hell not coming to us for the money, it's because he knows we'll give him the opportunity to cement himself as a fixture in our team. Hopefully we'll reap the rewards into the bargain. 200k is not a big fee in today's money but does signify that he is a cut above your average free transfer.
Good luck Jon, Swindon's your home now!!

Welcome back Jonathan, will be the first to admit that I was far from convinced by him last time, however, he was playing in a struggling team, at time when the team was full of cliques, over inflated egos and attitudes. Hopefully a fresh start in a team that's playing some good football including the likes Luongo (hopefully) kasim (hopefully) and others who would've played with him in the spurs youth team will bring the best out if him, now for Stephens (hopefully)

Absolutely right old Stager...far too many write off players before they even give them a chance, based on heresay. It's like start a rumour every minute on here at times.

Young players can develop in a quick space of time given a little patience, I am sure all outr real fans will wish him well and loads of success during his time with us.

Many fans hoped amongst the signings would be a striker, we now have one, so let's support him.

No dount all those who were staying away because of lack of signings will be back at the next home game .... wait.... even guess work at the fee paid is putting off some. Lol !

Lee hasn`t been too bad in the transfer market. I`m not sure about the fee but if Coops is happy to have Obika on current form then so am I. I doubt that he`ll be a Nile Ranger but let`s give him a chance please.

People have been screaming out for another striker. Now we have one and he's hardly through the door when some are moaning already. It's even been suggested on here that we go for Andy Johnson! Cload cuckoo land still appeals to some I see.

Spurs extended his contract after his previous brief stay with us so someone there rated him. MC is saying he was one we wanted and given their record of selecting and then developing players I look forward to seeing him. The Hart era was hardly the best time to see what a young 19 year old could do especially when all around him were hopelessly delusional about how good they were.

Yes, I am describing Simon Cox.

Anyone remember the 40,000 we wasted on a brickie from Poole?!?
