SWINDON Town have completed the loan signing of Brentford left-back Dominic Thompson until the end of the season, subject to EFL and FA approval.

Thompson, who is a product of the Arsenal youth academy, has played nine times for the Bees this term - including starting all five of the club's charge to the League Cup semi-finals.

The 20-year-old marks John Sheridan's first signing as Swindon Town manager, and the left-back will go straight into the squad for Saturday's League One game against Ipswich Town where he could make just his 15th senior appearance in professional football.

While at Arsenal, Thompson was an unused substitute during four League Cup games before being chosen as a travelling reserve for the Gunners’ Europa League trip to Ukraine to play FC Vorskla Poltava.

The left-back went on to sign for Brentford in the summer of 2019 for an undisclosed fee, where he made five appearances during the subsequent campaign.

Talking to Swindon Town’s official website, Thompson said: “They’re a good group of boys and all really friendly. There’s a lot of talent in this team.

“The gaffer has got in contact with Brentford, and this is an opportunity for me to play football and gain valuable experience “I want to help the club in the situation we are in at the moment.

“It’s a good challenge for me, stepping out to gain experience. It’s not like the start of the season, I’m ready, and if I’m needed I’m happy to step in.”
