Swindon Town keen on 11-goal League One striker

Swindon Town is reportedly keen on signing Eoin Doyle, the Bradford City striker with 11 goals for the Bantams last season, as reported by Alan Nixon of the Sun.

Doyle, who is known to Robins manager Richie Wellens from their time together at Oldham, started the season in poor form for Bradford, but managed to bag eight from the start of December in a vain bid to keep his side up.

He netted 11 in a loan spell for Oldham under Wellens, which is seemingly part of the reason he’s coveted at the County Ground.

Doyle has previously played for Portsmouth, Hibernian, Chesterfield and Preston to name but a few.

He appeared in the Championship for Preston Nort End, but struggled to settle and eventually wound up heading out on loan.

The Dublin-born striker has played European football, which came during his time with Sligo Rovers and he was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year in 2015 after scoring 25 goals in 33 outings for Chesterfield.


 

Our View

This would be a wonderful signing for Swindon. Doyle is a proven striker and has managed to score goals for most of the League One sides he’s played for.

He should tear up League Two given a chance. He’s also trusted by Wellens and given the hardline manager’s recent stance on contract rebels that’s got to be a good thing for dressing room morale.
