SWINDON Town face stiff competition from League One rivals, AFC Wimbledon for the signature of experienced goalkeeper, Joe Day.

The 30-year-old, who spent time on loan in South London last season, was thought to be leaning towards a move to the County Ground but now appears to be favouring a return to a club he knows well.

The Brighton-born stopper sees his contract in South Wales run out at the end of this season, and after having not played at all this term, Day is thought to be keen to move on from the Cardiff City stadium this month.

The news comes days after the Town boss announced he would be deciding on the futures of Manchester United loanee, Matej Kovar and Joe Fryer – who is at Swindon on a short-term deal – last weekend.

Meanwhile, Town are reported to be after several other targets in a bid to boost their survival chances in League One.

Portsmouth striker Jordy Hiwula is one such name – The Sun sports reporter, Alan Nixon tweeted that the County Ground club has made an enquiry for the 26-year-old, whose contract at Fratton Park runs out on January 20.

Portsmouth are set to offer their man a new deal at the club after boss Kenny Jackett suggested that Hiwula will get the playing time he is after if he remains on the south coast.

The former Fleetwood attacker has played just five times this term, and Pompey fans are said to be keen to see more of Hiwula in blue and white.

Jackett told The News in Portsmouth that there has been no discussions over a new deal just yet, but he is keen for Hiwula to stick around and praised the attacker’s speed and finishing ability.

Elsewhere, Swindon are most definitely in the market for a left-back as Ellis Iandolo is the club’s only recognised player in that position.

Sheffield Wednesday’s out-of-favour full-back, Matt Penney is reportedly a player who Town are interested in after making just five appearances for the Championship club this season.

Wales international, Declan John was another name that had been circulated, but he is expected to join Bolton Wanderers in the next few days.
