THE Swindon Town duo of Jermaine Hylton and Yaser Kasim look set to reject contract offers made by the club in favour of moves elsewhere.

It is understood that Hylton is set for a move to National League side Solihull Moors on a two-year deal and while Kasim looks no closer to securing a move elsewhere, Swindon manager David Flitcroft has said that he has had it indicated to him by the Iraqi’s representatives that he no longer wants to stay at the County Ground.

The duo were part of five players out of contract that Swindon offered new deals to, with club captain Nathan Thompson and central defender Raphael Branco already agreeing deals with Portsmouth and Boavista respectively.

Hylton endured a difficult time at the County Ground following his controversial move from Redditch in January 2015, which cost the club a fine of £1,000 by the Football Association after admitting a charge of an illegal approach.

Having spent a period of last term on loan at National League outfit Guiseley, his time at the County Ground looked all but over when he was fined for his walkout at Northampton Town on Valentine’s Day.

Kasim, who has been linked with moves to West Ham and Swansea during his time in Wiltshire, was told by then-head coach Luke Williams last season that it would be best for all parties if he sought pastures new this summer.

With the Iraqi understood to have had an offer from Bristol City and an unnamed Spanish side, Flitcroft admitted that he is not going to stand in the way of someone who is determined to leave the club.

“We spoke to representatives,” he told the Advertiser. “Yaser is certainly making it clear that he wants to be somewhere else.

“It’s nothing. I am a big believer that you don’t push water up a hill. You just waste time and you waste resources. So that’s that one.

“The Jermaine Hylton one is something again where we have spoken to Jermaine, it was a good chat and we’ll probably touch base with him towards the end of the week and see where that situation is.”

Meanwhile, Flitcroft is looking to have further conversations with teenage duo Tom Smith and Jake Evans, who were both present for the first day of training on Tuesday, with their deals also set to run out this weekend.

“We’ve just got ridiculously bogged down with signings and trying to get a training pitch and planning games and now we’re back in work, we fall back in and make sure we get the boys done,” he added.

“I’m looking forward to working with the younger players in the squad."
