LOAN WATCH: Tottenham youngster Luongo loving Swindon spell

Massimo Luongo says he is thoroughly enjoying his loan stint with Swindon Town.

The 21-year old Australian midfielder is on loan with the League One club from Tottenham and has already netted six times for the Robins so far this season.

Last term, Luongo appeared nine times for two goals with Town but this campaign has managed to chip in with goals in five wins for the seventh-placed side.

"I'm definitely enjoying it," Luongo told au.fourfourtwo.com.au. "I'm fortunate enough to have scored a few goals.

"I feel comfortable and settled here in Swindon, and hopefully I'll keep doing well and make the playoffs.

"I feel like I've got a secure spot in the team. The manager's (Mark Cooper) happy with me. He talks to me so often and tells me how I'm doing, what he wants from me, and I've got a fair bit of responsibility in the team which is why I start most of the games."

And Luongo also touched on the Capital One Cup fixture that Swindon lost to Chelsea 2-0 in September.

"That was pretty exciting," he added. "No-one was expecting to get a result but just to showcase what we can do.

"We try and play football at Swindon and we held them to 2-0 so couldn't feel too bad about that.

"Playing against (Michael) Essien and Ramires and (Juan) Mata, you see them on TV and you think oh he's not that tall or he's not that big."
