Promising Arsenal defender Daniel Boateng could be on his way to League Two side Swindon Town on a short-term loan deal according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old has been earmarked by Robins boss Paolo Di Canio to provide cover at the heart of Swindon's defence, and it is understood that Boateng will be the final arrival at the County Ground this summer.

The versatile stopper is entering his ninth year at Arsenal, and having featured regularly for the youth team, Boateng went on to captain the Gunners' reserve side at the Dallas Cup this summer.

Arsene Wenger has high hopes for the young Gunner, who is tipped to make his breakthrough at the Emirates Stadium in the near future.


However, in the meantime Arsenal are prepared to let Boateng leave on loan in order to continue his development with the option of gaining some much needed first-team experience with Swindon.

"He can be good because he is young but he comes from a top club," said Di Canio. "He has played some two years in their reserves and he captained them last year.

"He is another who can stretch my squad because he can cover two positions."
