STARKEY JOINS SWINDON TOWN

31 January 2017

The midfielder has agreed a permanent move to the League One side.


Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 midfielder Jesse Starkey has joined League One side Swindon Town on undisclosed terms.

The former Chelsea youngster has agreed a contract with Swindon until June 2018, and like Rohan Ince, who moved there on loan earlier today, will be eligible for his debut this weekend at Oxford United.

Under-23 coach Simon Rusk commented, "This is a great opportunity for Jesse and one he's worked hard for over the past three-and-a-half years with the club.

"Ultimately, his aim was to break into the first team here, but this move still represents a significant achievement for him.

"His challenge now will be to force his way into the first team at Swindon Town, and on behalf of everyone at the club, I would like wish him well in that aim."

Starkey joined Albion from Chelsea's academy in 2013, and has been a regular in the under-21s and under-23s ever since.

This season he's played 16 times, including four appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy, and scored two goals.
