NEWS | Nicky Ajose joins Swindon Town on loan

Nicky Ajose has joined League One side Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.

The striker arrived at The Valley from the County Ground in the summer of 2016 and has scored seven goals in 28 appearances for the Addicks this season.

His last appearance came against Bristol Rovers on January 2nd and he now returns to the club where he netted 24 times in League One last term.
Manager Karl Robinson said: “It’s important at this stage of his career for Nicky to be playing regularly and we are not able to guarantee that here at the moment. Hopefully he’ll enjoy being back in familiar surroundings, score some goals for Swindon and we’ll then see where we are in the summer.

“In the meantime we have plenty of striking options with Josh Magennis back soon, Lee Novak fully fit and Tony Watt who has been like a new signing for us. We’re hopeful to get one more striker in before the window closes which will give me plenty of quality options up front.”

Swindon currently sit 20th in League One and Ajose could make his third debut for the Robins against Oxford United on Sunday.
