Third Capture Complete

Raffaele De Vita has become the third arrival of the summer today after signing from Livingston. The Italian striker had been playing north of the border since 2008 after failing to make an appearance during his four years with Blackburn Rovers.

In his time with Livingston he scored 21 goals in 67 appearances over three seasons. A fairly good total and at only 23, he surely has scope to improve further as a player. Given the exit of Elliot Benyon this week to Wycombe Wanderers, his arrival at the County Ground is definitely a welcome one. 

The latest capture
The general view from Town fans is a good one, the fact we are desperate with strikers and a young striker who seems keen to prove himself south of the border having failed with Blackburn.

Swindon need to press on with more signings having seen far more exits than arrivals this summer. Paolo Di Canio appears to be doing just that with reports of another two players poised to complete their moves to SN1 this week.

The player that has been strongly linked with a move to Wiltshire is fellow Italian Alberto Comazzi. On paper he certainly has all the attributes that would mean he would fit in perfectly at the County Ground. At 32, the central defender would bring the lacking experience to our squad and more importantly our back four. Although having played his whole career in Italy, it remained to be seem if he could adapt to the English game.
