Ex-Man Utd fullback Reece Devine delighted with Swindon move

Former Manchester United defender Reece Devine is delighted about moving to Swindon Town.

Devine signed a two-year deal with Swindon on Friday.

He told the Swindon website: “It's a really good feeling to sign for the club. I had some really positive chats with the new manager and I love the attacking football the team plays which will suit me massively - I'm really buzzing to get started.

“I'm naturally an attacking wing back. I love to get forward and whip balls into the box and I've got a good engine, so I'm looking forward to expressing myself on the pitch.

“Scott (Lindsey) was an integral part of me signing here with his passion and vision, so it made the decision very easy. I'm ready to push on and I hope I can achieve great things at this club."

First Team Head Coach, Scott Lindsey, added: “Reece is a very capable left sided player who adds another dimension to the way we want to play.

“His ability to attack and get forward will enhance our creativity edge and I'm really excited to see him develop and express himself.

Town Technical Director, Sandro Di Michele, commented: “Reece is a high calibre young player with experience in the academies of some top Premier League sides, and we're delighted to have him onboard.

“He also brings with him some valuable experience in League Two and playing in Scotland, which has contributed massively to his development, and I've no doubt he'll have a really positive impact on the pitch moving forward."
