Scott Twine Summer Transfer Target On Free Transfer From Swindon Town
Burnley Football Club and Queens Park Rangers are among clubs interested in signing Swindon Town star Scott Twine on a free transfer in the summer transfer window. His Swindon Town contract expiring in three months, Premier League Burnley are battling Sky Bet Championship trio Brentford, Luton Town and QPR for Twine’s signature.
A set-piece specialist with an eye for the spectacular, Twine has produced twelve goals and eight assists this season, shining at Sky Bet League One strugglers Swindon Town after a superb loan spell at Forest Green Rovers in the first half of the 2020/21 season. It remains to be seen whether the 5ft 9in playmaker can make the step up to the first or second tier of the Football League, he certainly deserves a chance to prove he belongs at a higher level.
Speaking in 2018, when Twine was a fresh-faced 18-year-old looking to make a name for himself in the lower leagues, former Swindon boss Phil Brown insisted his twinkle toed teen was a “special” talent with potential to thrive a few rungs up the footballing ladder.
Speaking about Scott Twine then Swindon Town boss Phil Brown said, “I look at a player who is going to blossom, certainly at this club if not at a higher level, he has got excellent technique, a great attitude, good mentality towards hard work and he wants to play up top. Tell me what he lacks because I don’t see it. Maybe the physicality but if the likes of (David) Silva, (Lionel) Messi and those little fellas can grace the world stage.”
Twine may not end up at a Barcelona or Manchester City but he’s certainly on the right track as he looks to make Phil Brown’s prediction come true in the Premier League. Clarets boss Sean Dyche is keen to bring the midfielder to Turf Moor, to work alongside the likes of Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill.
