Swindon are keen to sign trialist Thomas Dossevi after his impressive short stint at the County Ground.

The Togo striker, 31, scored twice in 45 minutes to help the Robins to a 3-2 triumph over Nottingham Forest on Saturday and manager Danny Wilson has seen enough in a matter of days to know he can play a part in the club's promotion aspirations.

"He (Dossevi) can't do any more, can he?" Wilson told STFC Player. "He's come in and had a very good trial period for two or three days - he's looked very good in training I have to say. Then to top it with the two goals, the second was an excellent header, he's done himself the power of good."

He added: "I've not had a chance to speak to the people who came over with him, so we will speak. But hopefully he will stay longer. How can you not want him after playing like he did? But we don't know the situation yet.

"It's whether we can strike a deal. Yes, we would like him to come and we think he can offer something."
