SWINDON TOWN: One in, one out for Robins on deadline day
SWINDON Town took their total number of acquisitions in the summer transfer window up to 17 on deadline day, with the signing of forward Dany N’Guessan.
N’Guessan has penned a contract with the Robins until the end of the season after seeing his deal at Millwall terminated by mutual consent.
Town claimed that the 26-year-old had turned down the opportunity to move to Championship leaders Blackpool in favour of a switch to Wiltshire.
While N’Guessan was arriving, Paul Caddis was making his long-protracted departure from the County Ground.
The defender was the subject of a £150,000 bid from Birmingham which was accepted, as revealed on www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk yesterday, and Caddis then agreed personal terms and passed a medical at St Andrew’s.
The Scottish full-back has signed a three-year deal with the Blues, ending a miserable time at Swindon Town during which he has been out of favour since being stripped of the club captaincy by former manager Paolo Di Canio in the summer of 2012.
Finally, Town yesterday turned down a bid from an unnamed Championship club for midfielder Yaser Kasim.
As revealed by the Advertiser online yesterday, both Swindon and the player declined the advances of the side, which is believed to be fighting for promotion to the Premier League.
Chairman Jed McCrory told the Advertiser: “We received an offer from a Championship club. We rejected it. We told the player about it.
“He rejected it immediately because he wanted to stay with the club because he believes in what we’re doing and he’s enjoying the style of play.”
The transfer window is now closed for permanent dealings until January, although the emergency loan market opens shortly.
