After announcing this afternoon that he will be leaving the County Ground, forward Keshi Anderson has been immediately linked with a move to Neil Critchley’s Blackpool.
Anderson hit the headlines back in 2015 after signing for Premier League Crystal Palace from minnows Barton Rovers after scoring thrice for Brentford in a trial game against the Eagles. Though never formally featuring for the South London outfit, he enjoyed numerous loan spells around the EFL before eventually signing permanently with Swindon in January 2018.
Town fans have been quick to praise their departing player who played such an important role in their recent title-winning campaign:
I would like to announce it once again, Keshi Anderson was the best 10 in League 2 this season.

Quality mate, got all the attributes for a no.10 only thing I'd say is could notch up a few more goals but hes class, sad to see him go but hopefully does well for you lot.

Several other League One clubs such as Burton Albion and Bristol Rovers have been linked with the Luton-born man since the close of the season, but Bloomfield Road now appears to be his desired destination after rejecting a new contract at the County Ground.
Anderson has previously played in the third tier for Northampton Town, Bolton Wanderers, and Doncaster Rovers; however, it was at the latter of which that he most impressed, scoring three goals in a short spell of seven games.
The forward would be an excellent addition to Neil Critchley’s side as the Tangerines look towards that ever-elusive promotion from League One.
