'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Swansea City Sign MK Dons Striker On Loan

Swansea City have today completed the loan signing of MK Dons striker Jermaine Easter.

Brendan Rodgers was keen to strengthen his strikeforce and after having an audacious loan bid for Eidur Gudjohnsen turned down, the Swans boss has brought in Easter on loan until January 31st 2011.

Easter looks set to leave MK Dons next year as he is keen to play in the Championship, and the 28 year-old believes joining the Swans will help give him that opportunity.

'I'm delighted to be here,''

'It happened so quickly. I had a few phonecalls yesterday and here I am today.

'My contract at MK Dons ends at the end of the season and I've made it clear that I want to play Championship football and have international aspirations. So the opportunity to come here was perfect for me.

'I've had a few injuries this season, but I grabbed 20 last season in a mid-table side and I'm hoping to score a few more for Swansea.''

'I thought Swansea were different class against Cardiff. It's crazy, but I remember sitting on the sofa with my wife watching the game and saying that I would love to play in that team with all the chances they get. And here I am - it's madness.''


Dons manager Karl Robinson said:

'We're disappointed to lose him, but Swansea are a big club challenging for promotion to the Premier League and this represents a big opportunity for Jermaine.

'If he does well at that level then I'm sure there will be a number of clubs interested in signing him in January. If he comes back he'll do so knowing that we gave him every opportunity to fulfil his ambition of playing Championship football.'


Jermaine Easter joined MK Dons last year and since then he has scored 14 goals in 43 League starts. His best goalscoring spell was with Wycombe Wanderers between 2006 and 2008 when he netted 21 goals in 44 League games.

Easter has made 11 League appearances this term but has yet to get on the scoresheet. Hopefully he can re-produce some goalscoring form with the Swans over the coming months.

Not a bad signing knows where the goal is when he is fit

A journeyman at best---- lots of clubs and seems to have lost his way this season---not scoring regularly enough---I can't see him hacking it in the Championship--another like Beattie and Dobbie I think.
