STRIKER Theo Robinson has revealed he turned down offers from other clubs in the Football League to allow his deadline day Swindon Town move to be completed.

Robinson, 30, added that his previous link with Town boss Richie Wellens also had a big say in his move to Wiltshire – with the striker keen to work under the 38-year-old’s positive playing style.

The pair enjoyed two years as teammates at Doncaster Rovers between 2013 and 2015, during which the club suffered from relegation from the Championship into League One.

Despite this, Robinson insists he and Wellens have unfinished business to complete – and he’s hoping to reignite Town’s struggling play-off charge when facing Milton Keynes Dons this weekend.

Robinson said: “I could’ve gone to other teams, and I could’ve played in those other teams as well.

“But I’ve played with Richie (Wellens) and I know how he works.

“Swindon suits me, I chose the club because of my links with the manager and how he likes to play football. I know how he works, that’s one of the main reasons.”

The Jamaican international also confirmed that there was no previous contact between himself and Swindon Town, despite his positive working relationship with Wellens’ predecessor Phil Brown – who was sacked in November.

Despite appearing 31 times for Seasiders this season, Robinson stated that the promise of first-team football added to his pros list prior to signing up to Town’s challenge until the end of the season.

Having notched four goals this season, the former Derby County frontman is keen to re-establish some form in front of goal.

I want to play more regularly, I have been playing at Southend – but not as much as I would like,” said Robinson.

“As a striker, I want to be playing every week. The more games you play, the better you are going to be.

“I’ve found settling in has been very good, all of the lads have been very welcoming.

“I know some players before I joined – Jermaine McGlashan, Toumani Diagouraga and Kyle Bennett.

“Kyle and Jermaine are quite close friends, I would say that I speak to them on a daily basis.”

Meanwhile he hopes his work-ethic and pace will stand out as key attributes to the club’s supporters – and he has vowed to give nothing less than 100 per cent during his time on the pitch.

He said: “Pace and energy are my strengths, I will always give 100 per cent no matter what.

“I’d like to think my experience will help too – not just myself but also the team.

“It’s the first opportunity for myself to show what I can do.

“It’s up to me to get my head down, train hard and work hard.”
