SWINDON TOWN: Bessone set for Swindon move?
PAOLO Di Canio appears to have narrowed his search for new recruits before Friday’s transfer deadline, as Federico Bessone arrived at the County Ground yesterday to meet with the Swindon manager.
The Swansea defender was pictured by the Advertiser entering the stadium, alongside his agent, on Wednesday.
Bessone, a 28-year-old Argentinian who has played 42 times for the Swans over two separate spells in south Wales, is primarily a left-back and would potentially fill the space left by the recent departure of Alessandro Cibocchi.
The summer transfer window slams shut on Friday night, and Di Canio has already stated his intention to bring in two or three new players before that time - with a defender and a striker top of that list.
Bessone, who has also played for Leeds and Charlton in his four-year English career, has not featured for Swansea since their 2-1 defeat to Bolton in the fourth round of the FA Cup in January.
However, he did make 13 appearances for Charlton last term, helping them to the League One title.
Meanwhile, the Advertiser understands negotiations regarding a potential move for Millwall defender Darren Ward remain ongoing.
Lions boss Kenny Jackett has given Ward his blessing to discuss a switch to Wiltshire but insisted the centre-back could still be involved at the New Den if a deal is not completed.
