Swindon Town have had a bid accepted by Inverness Caledonian Thistle for midfielder Lee Cox.

The 21-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and Inverness boss Terry Butcher told BBC Scotland that he will join the Robins on Monday.

"We've agreed a fee with Swindon," said Butcher. "It's up to Swindon to conclude it now.

"It's disappointing because he's been good for us. Swindon are getting a very good young boy. We wish him very well."

Cox joined Inverness from Leicester in 2009 and previously had a loan spell at Yeovil Town.

Injury prevented him featuring at the start of this season but he has made nine appearances since late October.

Butcher was speaking after his side's 0-0 draw at home to St Mirren, which kept them within a point of the Paisley in the bottom half of the Scottish Premier League.

Frenchman Claude Gnakpa made an appearance for Inverness after joining the Highland side until the end of the season from Walsall and could struck the post with 10 minutes remaining.

Despite the goalless encounter, Butcher was pleased that his side worked hard in difficult conditions and could have taken something more from the match.

"We certainly had good opportunities," said Butcher. "We hit the post when Claude came on too and he made a great impact.

"I'm not disappointed with the draw. We kept a clean sheet and it's another match unbeaten, so momentum is still there with us."
