Swindon boss Wilson brings in four new faces

After weeks of frantic phone calls, Swindon Town manager Danny Wilson has finally added new four players to his squad.

The boss had identified defence as a key priority and moved to strengthen his back-line with the signing of Gordon Greer from Doncaster Rovers.

The 28-year-old Scot, who Blackburn Rovers once paid £200,000 for from Clyde, joins on loan for a month and will likely go straight into the side for tomorrow's night home game with Walsall, with Pat Kanyuka suspended and skipper Hasney Aljofree still injured.

Wilson has also looked to the Championship for his second recruit, with Hal Robson-Kanu also arriving for a month on loan from Reading.

The 19-year-old forward has already spent time on loan in League One this season with a spell at Southend United, where he scored three goals in eight appearances.

Having previously had trials with Arsenal, before opting to join Reading, the 5'7'' forward does not seem to be the target man Wilson had identified but his pace is a constant threat and he is able to play on the wings or as a striker.

The role of the physically dominant forward, vacated by the injured Barry Corr, could be filled by trialist Hamdi Razak, who scored a hat-trick in last week's 6-3 reserve win against Swansea City, who has signed on until the end of the season.

The Robins boss told the Gazette last week how impressed he had been on a first viewing and wasted no time snapping him up on a longer-term deal.

Fellow trialist, Jean-Francois Lescinel, has also penned a contract until the end end of the season.

The Haiti international, and former Paris Saint-Germain defender, will provide another option for a back-line that has shipped goals with alarming regularity this season.
