SWINDON Town chairman Lee Power has revealed that the club's playing budget has hit the £2 million mark for this season and admits their summer of wheeling and dealing may not be at an end just yet.

The capture of Wigan striker Kaiyne Woolery for £350,000 on Monday was perhaps the most eyebrow-raising piece of Town's recruitment drive, which has now seen 11 players walk through the 'in' door at the County Ground to date.

Power, who was lauded by boss David Flitcroft for his role in pushing the Woolery deal across the line, despite interest from League One sides as well as reported offers from Forest Green Rovers, Lincoln City and Mansfield Town, hopes that sort of business will convince supporters of the club's promotion ambitions this season and has refused to rule out further moves before the window shuts at 11pm on Thursday, August 31.

The six-figure sum splashed out on Woolery, whose paperwork didn’t go through in time to feature against Norwich City on Tuesday, has inevitably led to renewed speculation over the future of the prized asset of goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux, with Town also in for a possible windfall from any mooted move away from Bristol City by former defender Aden Flint.

Power though insists those issues had no bearing on the arrival of Woolery and has pledged to back Flitcroft should the manager decide he needs further additions to his squad.

"The budget is there to spend. We're up to two million pounds, which will be a sizeable budget for this league,'' Power told BBC Wiltshire.

"Obviously with Kaiyne coming in now, the manager's done fantastic(cally). Everyone realises he's brought in 11 players now so it's nearly a completely new team. He's done a fantastic job in bringing these players in and the nice thing about it is a lot of these players are coming to the club because they want to play for him.

"It would be nice for Flinty to go and there's some money due there to the football club but we couldn't hold on for that. This is the lad (Woolery) that the manager wanted and, like I said before, I'll back him as much as I can. He's done fantastically well in a short space of time, bringing in the players that he has, and I needed to show him that support.''

Referring to impending end of the transfer window, the chairman added: "The budget is up to where it is at the moment. Obviously there's one or two maybe that might go in or come out, like every football club, if different things happen.

"There might be one or two needed, depending on where these injuries are, but I'll leave that to the manager and he'll come to me if he thinks that is necessary and, as the chairman, I'll do my best to support him and bring those in if that's what's needed.

"Hopefully everybody can see we're trying our best to get back up after the disappointment of last year and the supporters will come out and support us.

"That's all we can ask. It (last season) was a disappointing year and we don't need to go back over that. It's a new era, new manager, new team, new tactics, new way of playing and, as a football club, we've tried to correct the wrongs from last season in terms of investment and budget.

"The manager has come in and worked very hard in bringing in a new team. Nothing happens very early and after 10-12 games we'll know where we are but we're pleased with the start and I'm sure, with this manager in place, we'll be nearer the goal we want to be, which is promotion this season.''
