SWINDON TOWN: Frecklington never a Town target
2:10pm Wednesday 9th January 2013 in Local
SWINDON Town never showed interest in former Peterborough midfielder Lee Frecklington, the Advertiser understands.
Reports earlier today from Yorkshire said Rotherham manager Steve Evans had stated Town were one of several clubs that attempted to hijack the Millers' signing of the 27-year-old, who arrived on a permanent deal at the New York Stadium last week.
"We thought we would have had it done a month ago," he told skysports.com. "But Lee's performances alerted other clubs and there were five or six going to Peterborough late in the day to see if they could take him, but thankfully Lee stuck to his guns and wanted to join us."
However, it has emerged that the Robins did not as much as make a tentative approach for Frecklington.
