Town to request extra Troy wage cash
SWINDON Town will ask Carlisle to up their contribution to Troy Archibald-Henville’s wages if they want to keep the centre-back beyond his initial one-month loan spell in Cumbria.
The Advertiser understands Town are willing to allow the defender to remain with the north west club, but will not sanction an extension to the loan arrangement unless their League One rivals significantly increase the percentage of the former Exeter man’s £3,000 per week salary that they are paying.
Archibald-Henville is highly-rated by Carlisle’s caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh, who revealed this week that he has opened talks with Swindon regarding the possibility of keeping the former Exeter man at Brunton Park.
Carlisle have conceded just once in three games since the 24-year-old’s arrival.
Town boss Mark Cooper said the ultimate decision would rest with the player.
He told the Advertiser: “They’ve made contact and they’d like to keep him for another month. The final decision will be with Troy. He needs to be playing.
“I’ve not spoken to Troy this week, I know he’s done quite well. We will speak to Troy and if it’s right that he’s going to go off for another month and play then that will benefit everyone.”
Meanwhile, Kayden Jackson's loan spell at non-league Swindon Supermarine has been extended by a further month.
The Swindon Town striker has scored five goals in seven appearances since joining the Webb's Wood Stadium club at the end of August.
Jackson, who triumphed in the Win a Pro Contract competition in April, will remain with the Southern League Division One South & West side until Wednesday, October 23.
