Swindon Town have made their sixteenth and final signing of the summer, as Town bring in Keshi Anderson on a six-month loan deal from Crystal Palace.
Town tried to sign the 22-year-old last season, but he went to Bolton Wanderers instead. A number of clubs were interested in signing the pacey forward, but he has joined David Flitcroft’s side.
Anderson started his career with Barton Rovers, before being picked up by Crystal Palace in 2015. He spent most of 2015 on loan at Doncaster Rovers where he netted on three occasions. Anderson went out on loan to Bolton last season where he scored a solitary goal, before being recalled. After he was recalled, he went out on loan to Northampton where he scored three goals.
Anderson was involved with Palace in pre-season. He featured in the Asia Trophy Tournament for The Eagles. Arsenal went on to win the tournament.

The Crystal Palace forward has become Town’s fourth Deadline Day signing. The Reds announced that Derby duo Kellan Gordon and Timi Elsnik signed on season-long loans earlier, and keeper Reice Charles-Cook had penned a two-year deal with Town. The addition of Keshi Anderson has rounded off a busy Deadline Day for Swindon.
