Published Add your comment

Swindon have finally confirmed the capture of Joe Devera from Barnet.

Devera, 24, was the Bees' player of the year last season and has turned down a new contract at Underhill to link up with new Robins boss Paolo Di Canio.

A product of Barnet's youth system and with 200 games under his belt for the London outfit, Devera officially penned a two-year contract on Friday.

News broke of his impending move earlier this week, and he told Swindon's official website: "It's been a long wait but I am delighted to have got everything sorted."


He added: "It was time I moved on from Barnet and I've been aware of Swindon for quite a while.

"I have played here at the County Ground for Barnet and it's a great set-up."

He added: "Last season was a busy one with what happened at Barnet but I'm delighted to be a Swindon player and I cannot wait for the season to start."
