CONFIRMED: Anthony Grant joins Swindon Town on permanent deal
ANTHONY GRANT has become Swindon Town’s first singing of the January transfer window after the club revealed the midfielder has signed a permanent deal at the County Ground for an undisclosed fee.
Signing on a short-season loan from League One Shrewsbury on transfer deadline day, Grant has become a fan favourite at SN1, with Swindon fans quick to praise the positive and calming impact he has had on Town’s midfield.
After being given his club debut away to Leyton Orient in September, Grant has become a mainstay under Richie Wellens with the 32-year-old starting every league game since.
A defensively minded midfielder, Grant began his career at Premier league big hitters Chelsea and made his Premier League debut under Jose Mourinho during the London clubs league winning 04/05 season.
Since then, Grant has gone on to play for a whole host of clubs including Wycombe Wanderers, Oldham Athletic, Shrewsbury Town, and more, before he arrived in Swindon in September.
Little information has as of yet been revealed on the length of contract signed by Grant, but it is expected that he will be playing in Swindon colours next season given Wellens’ desire to tie players down to bigger contracts.
Grant’s signature will come as great relief to STFC fans with many concerned that the midfielder had played his last minutes at the County Ground following Swindon’s 1-1 draw with Bradford at the weekend.
However the signing raises many more questions surrounding the future of Eoin Doyle with it yet to be seen whether he will join back up with Swindon as Bradford consider recalling the divisions top goal scorer.
Swindon Town are back in action on Saturday when Crewe Alexandra visit SN1.
