Greer tempted by Swindon switch

Published Add your comment

Doncaster defender Gordon Greer is tempted by a switch to Swindon and admits he will come to a decision sooner rather than later after being offered a contract by Danny Wilson.

The defender, 28, has been a mainstay of Swindon's battle to avoid the drop since arriving on loan from Rovers in January - marking the final game of his three-month spell with a 2-1 triumph over Bristol Rovers at the weekend that secured the club's League One status.

His contract at the Keepmoat Stadium expires in the summer and he told the Swindon Advertiser: "It feels like it's time to move on from Doncaster and I want the best deal possible for myself and my family. I've been offered a deal with Swindon, but there are offers to go back to Scotland and a couple in League Two to look at as well."

He added: "I've really enjoyed my time here. I've loved working with the manager and players here so we'll just see what happens. I'd like to get it done the sooner the better for me and my family, but I'll have to weigh up everything."

Wilson added: "I think he's enjoyed it here. He likes the area, he loves the fans, so let's just hope we can come to some sort of agreement."
