A number of Championship clubs are reportedly interested in signing Swindon Town midfielder Scott Twine during the January transfer window.
Journalist Alan Nixon has recently revealed that the 21-year-old is wanted by the likes of AFC Bournemouth, Brentford, Reading, QPR and Luton Town, although it remains to be seen as to which club is leading the race to land his signature this month.
Luton. Keen on Scott Twine at Swindon. So are Reading Brentford QPR and Bournemouth. Swindon planning to hold on to him if possible.

Twine has been a regular for the Robins in League One this season, and has scored eight goals in five appearances for John Sheridan’s side, who are currently sat 23rd in the third-tier standings after their opening 22 matches this term.
The Swindon Advertiser have recently revealed that Luton are set to make a ‘decent offer’ to sign the youngster, who has clearly caught the eye with some impressive performances.
Nixon also reported that Swindon are in no rush to cash-in on Twine, which will be pleasing to hear for the club’s supporters this month.
Twine is out-of-contract at the end of the 2020/21 season, and the Swindon Advertiser have previously reported that the Robins have started negotiations with the midfielder over a new contract.
It remains to be seen as to whether he’ll commit his future to the League One club though, especially now that a number of teams in the Championship are keen on a deal to land his signature.
You would imagine that a move to the second-tier could be tempting, with promotion-chasing sides Reading, Brentford and Bournemouth all keeping a close eye on him at this moment in time.
Reading could potentially be in the market for a midfielder, with rumours linking talisman Michael Olise with a move to the Premier League not easing anytime soon.
But for now, Twine remains a Swindon Town player, but it’ll certainly be an interesting few weeks ahead in this month’s transfer window, with the Robins looking to do all they can to keep him at The County Ground.
