Swindon Town have signed defensive midfielder Jordan Lyden after the former Aston Villa man spent time on trial with the Robins this summer.

The 23-year-old, who left Villa at the end of last term, has agreed a one-year contract with the League Two club.

Australia-born Lyden made eight appearances in all competitions for the West Midlands club, with whom he started his career as a trainee.

Those included four Premier League appearances in the 2015-16 season.

"I'm delighted to finally sign. Once the gaffer [Richie Wellens] got in touch I thought it was the right place to come," Lyden told Swindon's website.
