Swindon no longer interested in Smith

Bermuda striker Jonté Smith

Jonté Smith will not be moving to Sky Bet League Two side Swindon Town during the transfer window this month.

Smith netted a hat-trick in a behind-closed-doors friendly for Swindon last month but has not done enough to convince Richie Wellens to sign the Bermuda striker.

Wellens said he was no longer interested in the 24-year-old, who plays for non-League side Lewes. “We had a look at him in a practice match,” Wellens told the Swindon Advertiser in a recent interview. “But we won’t be taking that any further. Trials are great, you get to see players in the flesh against what we have got. We want a striker, but in terms on Jonté Smith nothing will be happening.”

Smith, a former Crawley Town striker, played in Lewes’ 3-0 defeat at home to Burgess Hill Town on New Year’s Day.
