Fresh development emerges in transfer tug-of-war over Barnsley, QPR and Portsmouth target

Published

Swindon Town have offered a new contract to Scott Twine amid links to Brentford, Barnsley, Luton Town, QPR, and Portsmouth. 

The 21-year-old was brilliant in the 2020/21 campaign, first impressing while on loan at Newport Town in the first half of the season and then continuing his strong form after returning to parent club Swindon.

Twine was unable to help the Robins avoid relegation to League Two but his emergence was certainly one of the bright spots in a frustrating season.

The playmaker is out of contract this summer and there are a host of clubs looking to capitalise, with Brentford, Barnsley, Luton, QPR, and Pompey all linked.

It seems Swindon are trying their hardest to ensure that Twine remains at the County Ground as it was revealed in their retained list announcement yesterday that he’d been offered new terms to remain at the club.

This summer looks set to be pivotal summer for the 21-year-old on the back of what was by far the most productive season of his career, as he scored 13 goals and added nine assists.

Did Lloyd Isgrove ever score a goal for Swindon?

The Verdict

Twine has been fantastic this season and it’s no surprise given his contract status that he’s found himself in the middle of a transfer tug-of-war.

The 21-year-old suggested previously that he could still stay at the County Ground moving forward and it seems Swindon have now offered him the chance to do just that.

It may be his boyhood club but even so, it may be hard to turn down Championship football in order to drop down to League Two.
