Swindon Town sign West Ham forward Montano on loan

Montano scored four goals during his two-month loan spell at Notts County

Swindon Town have brought in West Ham forward Cristian Montano on a one-month loan deal.

The Colombian, 19, has recently had a successful spell with Notts County, where he scored four goals in 11 games.

He was recalled by the Hammers last week to cover for injuries but has been sent out for a second time in order to gain more first team experience.

"I'm here now and I want to show the fans what I'm capable of doing," Montano told BBC Wiltshire.

He continued: "On Friday I was told I was going to go back to West Ham and see how it goes, but after training on Tuesday I got told that Paolo [Di Canio, Swindon manager] had come in so I said I wanted to go there and play football.

"I'm grateful to them [Notts County], Martin Allen and the fans - everyone made me feel so welcome. I made my competitive debut against Nottingham Forest in the Carling Cup which was the highlight of my career so far.

"I also scored my first league goal against Charlton as well so I must say I'm really happy with what I've done so far.

"I just want to keep working hard and hopefully I can show the same here and bring something different to the team."

Montano will be available to face Accrington on Saturday.
