SWINDON Town have confirmed the signing of striker Kaiyne Woolery from League One side Wigan Athletic on a three-year contract.

Town confirmed the deal this afternoon, with Woolery arriving from the Latics for a fee of £350,000.

Woolery rose to prominence on the back of a match-winning performance in last season’s National League play-off final while on loan at Forest Green Rovers.

He scored twice as former Town manager Mark Cooper’s Rovers beat Tranmere 3-1 at Wembley to win promotion to the Football League for the first time.

After his unveiling today Woolery said: "I wouldn't say I'm known for scoring lots of goals yet, I've got the potential to and, hopefully, that's what I'm coming here to do.

"It's such a big club and they are looking to go for promotion and the manager has told me his plans for the club and I'm buying into it.

"I wouldn't have left (Wigan) if I didn't want to come here. I still had another two years left on my deal so it's a choice I wanted to make.

"I'd like to say I'm an exciting player. I like to run in behind and stretch teams and hopefully cause the defenders a few problems."

Town manager David Flitcroft had prioritised bringing in a new striker as he continued his summer recruitment drive, with the club having been linked with a move for Woolery for several weeks.

The striker added: "It made me feel happy that I was a wanted man.

"It just shows you how much the manager wants me and that's nice to know that they are willing to pay a big amount of money to bring me on board.

"I don't feel any extra pressure. The best I can do is work hard and give everything my all."

Woolery netted four times in 19 appearances for Forest Green after joining the club on loan in January – his third club of 2016-17 campaign.

He started the season at Bolton before allowed to leave for Wigan on free transfer over the summer but played just once for the Latics before being sent out on loan.

Woolery was first signed by Bolton from non-league side Tamworth for £10,000 back in August 2014 and has scored three goals in his 30 appearances for Football League clubs.
