Swindon Town are reportedly pursuing a deal for former Notts County defender Richard Brindley as part of their summer rebuild.

According to Pete O’Rourke, transfer correspondent for Football Insider, Swindon are looking to add the 31-year-old to their defensive ranks.

Brindley left Notts County at the end of last season having spent five years at Meadow Lane and helping them back to the Football League via the playoffs in 2022/23 before making 27 appearances in League Two, although he missed two months of the campaign with an injury.

The defender has experience of playing at both right-back and on the right side of a back three and has even been used on the left at times during his career, providing versatility across the backline as Mark Kennedy and Jamie Russell look to build a squad capable of playing in multiple systems.

With Town predominantly looking at playing with three at the back, Brindley’s extensive experience playing within a three-man defensive structure with Notts County, who predominantly used that system under Luke Williams and Stuart Maynard, will likely provide added appeal for Swindon.

However, Swindon are not the only League Two club looking to land the former Rotherham United man as his previous clubs Colchester United and Bromley have also been linked with bringing him back.

Brindley spent three seasons at the JobServe Community Stadium, playing under former Swindon boss John McGreal, before leaving for Barnet in 2017. The defender moved from The Hive to Bromley for a season in 2018 before moving to Notts County following their relegation from the EFL.

Swindon are yet to add a central defender so far this summer, bringing in Ollie Clarke for an undisclosed fee from Mansfield Town and a pair of wing-backs in Tunmise Sobowale from Shrewsbury Town and Rosaire Longelo after he turned down an offer from Accrington Stanley.
