PAOLO Di Canio has allayed fears he may miss out on potential transfer targets while he is with the Town squad in Italy, explaining that chairman Jeremy Wray is prepared to fly out and finalise a deal at the drop of a hat.

The Italian stated at the end of last week that he is still looking to bolster his squad with up to five new players before the start of the season.

Di Canio wants trialist Oliver Risser to be one of those additions and has offered the Namibian a permanent deal, while Estonia international defender Taijo Teniste joined the squad at their training camp last night.

And Di Canio is adamant that should Teniste or any of the other trialists impress, Wray and chief executive Nick Watkins will not hesitate to do what is needed to make sure the deal happens.

“If we decide to sign him, the chairman and Nick (Watkins) will fly here,” he told the Advertiser. “They support me totally, I am very happy that they are behind me and I am not worried about that.

“If we make a decision in one or two days, they will fly down to sign the player definitely.”

Teniste, who predominantly plays on the left and can also play in midfield, has seven caps for Estonia and was most recently on the books of FC Levadia Tallinn.

And while Di Canio is of the opinion that he possesses the quality that he is looking for in his players, he wants to be sure that he also has the attitude to match his ability before deciding whether to offer a long-term deal.

“In my mind (trialists) should be players that we can sign straight away, but once again I want to see him with the rest of the squad,” he added.

“This is because if he comes and starts thinking ‘I am a big player and the best or maybe I don’t like it here because I am too big’ I will tell him he can go.

“A player needs to say thanks for being giving the opportunity to play for Swindon. We have money to build a team and I do not need to take players who think they are better.

“I want an Oliver Risser attitude. Such an attitude can be a good influence on the other players . We have wiped the slate clean and there is a right atmosphere here now where we can build a squad with big desire and positive thinking and all working in the same direction.

“This player is a good player, but I want to see him for five days with us in Italy and after five days I will decide if we can keep him.”
