Swindon poised to sign Southampton defender on loan

League One Swindon Town are set to sign Southampton defender Jordan Turnbull. The 19 year old was given permission to play for the Robins in Tuesday's friendly against Leeds and is expected to join on a season-long loan this week.

But Town insist that the deal for the teenager does not mean they will miss out on fellow Saints defender Jack Stephens, who they have been trying to bring back on loan this summer.

"We're trying for Jack as well," confirmed Swindon chairman Lee Power.

"We're hoping to get him in before the start of the season but it's well documented that Southampton are lacking in numbers at the moment," he told BBC Wiltshire.
