SWINDON Town have bolstered their defensive options on transfer deadline day by signing centre back Rollin Menayese on loan from Bristol Rovers until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old joined Rovers from National League South side Weston-super-Mare last summer but he has played just four times for the club this season.

The arrival of Menayese will give Town boss David Flitcroft further options at the back, with Town having just three recognised fit central defenders in their squad at present in captain Olly Lancashire, Matt Preston and Chris Robertson.

"I'm excited and as soon as I was told I was coming here I couldn't wait to get here and just get started," he said.

"Swindon are a big club in this league and in the Football League as well and they are doing really well at the top of the table. 

"It was a no-brainer.

"I want to come here and just play games, grow as a player, improve and do my best to help the team get as many clean sheets and three points as possible."
