Boss Di Canio would splash own cash on buying players for Swindon

League One Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio has said he is willing to spend £30,000 of his own money to re-sign their loan players, reports BBC Sport. Deals for Tottenham midfielder John Bostock , Norwich striker Chris Martin and Charlton midfielder Danny Hollands expired at the weekend.

And Chairman Sir William Patey has said Di Canio will not be given extra funds during the January transfer window.

"I will do everything to keep them, even put my own money in," the Town boss told BBC Wiltshire.

"I will spend £20,000 or £30,000 and put my money in to keep them for as long as we can, because I care and I want to win. I'm sure with them we have more chance to win."

"I'm not going to start selling my houses in Italy, but I want to keep those players," insisted Di Canio, whose side sit fifth in League One.

"When I die I will have a bit less money but will have the victory as a manager.

"I've spent big money on solicitors in the past; you can imagine what I would spend on my players."
