I'm told Eoin Doyle is likely to pen a deal with Swindon. Don't think Mansfield's interest was reciprocated.

(Mansfield) Took the two forwards. Doyle may have missed that boat now.

(Mansfield) Wanted an answer at weekend. Signed couple of others. So that’s not too likely now.

Just two bits from me today. Mansfield are still interested in Doyle despite the Bowery signing, but I'm told they're behind the obvious choice of destination.

Mansfield. Major players in the Eoin Doyle race. League Two goal machine.


Swindon Town remain favourites to sign proven goal scorer despite Mansfield interest
Tues 23 June 2020

Swindon Town remain the front runners to keep Eoin Doyle at the club this summer despite interest from Mansfield Town.

Doyle helped the Robins win the League Two title this season after the EFL’s decision to rank teams by points per game following the postponement of the campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Irish striker, who had enjoyed prolific spells at Chesterfield and Oldham, was loaned to Richie Wellens side last summer following a difficult spell with Bradford City in League One during the 2018/19 season.

He was so good, scoring more than 20 goals before New Year, that Bradford recalled him in January only to persist in using him as a target man. Doyle did eventually return to Swindon, finishing the campaign with 25 goals in 36 appearances at the County Ground.

He signed a short-term deal in January that will expire at the end of this month which has alerted the interest of League Two Mansfield. However, according to James Goodwin, Swindon remain the favourites to land the 32-year-old.


Swindon Town: Eoin Doyle offered new deal by League Two champions
Tues 23 June 2020

League Two champions Swindon Town have offered a new deal to out-of-contract striker Eoin Doyle.

Doyle, 32, was instrumental in helping secure automatic promotion season, scoring 25 goals in 34 appearances.

He made his move from Bradford City permanent in January on a deal until the end of the season after a prolific loan spell.

Doyle is understood to be interesting other clubs as Swindon try to finalise his squad for next season.

“There’s a big part of our team that are out of contract but that we also need to improve on,” manager Richie Wellens told BBC Radio Wiltshire.

“We simply can’t do anything until a decision is made on a salary cap whether that’s re-sign players on new contracts or sign new players.

“We have to learn to be patient but when we do make decisions on players, we have to make sure they’re the right ones.”
