SWINDON TOWN: Wray flies to Italy for summit talks
PAOLO Di Canio will sit down with Swindon Town’s hierarchy at the club’s training camp on the banks of Lake Garda today to discuss their plans for the remainder of the summer.
Interim chairman Jeremy Wray and Di Canio’s agent Phil Spencer were set to fly out and join up with the Robins at Hotel Veronello this morning and the duo will meet with Di Canio and board member Russell Backhouse, who is already in northern Italy, to talk tactics in the transfer market.
Seven players have already been acquired by Swindon since the end of last season, but Di Canio is still after Tottenham midfielder John Bostock on a long-term loan deal and he remains interested in two unnamed players who have been offered to Town by their agents over the course of the last week.
“Tomorrow we will have a meeting because Phil and the chairman will travel here and Russell is already here,” said the Robins boss.
“We will have a meeting and we will see. I don’t expect anything today (Monday), tomorrow we’ll have more news how we can proceed in terms of accelerating a bit more the process of coming. We will see tomorrow.”
Meanwhile, trialist Simone Materazzi has left the Swindon touring party after spending five days trying to earn a contract with the Robins.
