Swindon Town are leading the race to sign Wigan Athletic’s Kaiyne Woolery on loan but they face competition from Forest Green Rovers according to a report from journalist Alan Nixon.

Last year Wigan got a hell of a coup after signing Woolery from their Lancashire rivals Bolton Wanderers where he was seen as one of their best young strikers and prospects. Despite that, he struggled to get into the Wigan first team and would only make one appearance for the club last season as they got relegated from the Sky Bet Championship.

Instead, he spent much of last season on loan with then non-league club Forest Green and was a key player in their historic promotion to Sky Bet League Two, scoring two goals in their play-off final victory over Tranmere Rovers. And it seemed like it would be perfect for Forest Green to sign Woolery on loan again when Wigan decided that he would once again leave the club on a temporary deal. But while they are interested, he may end up elsewhere.

That’s because Swindon are also looking to sign Woolery and they are leading the race to get him in on loan. The Robins were relegated from Sky Bet League One last season and want to make sure that their stay in the bottom tier of the EFL is a short one so are looking to sign the 22-year-old forward to help them get promoted. And they are the most likely to get Woolery despite competition from Former club Forest Green.
