Swindon Town manager Danny Wilson says his first two signings of the summer will add vital experience to his squad.

Left-back Michael Rose and midfielder David Prutton are expected to complete moves to the County Ground this week.

Speaking exclusively to BBC Wiltshire, Wilson said: "Michael knows this league inside out and with David, he's played at big clubs and been very successful.

"Michael is a tough old warrior, and David is a creative player who will get forward, he's got a terrific engine."

Rose, 27, is signed to Stockport but spent the second half of last season on-loan at Norwich, helping the Canaries win the League One title and promotion to the Championship.

Wilson believes the former Manchester United trainee will be a big asset to Swindon.

"Michael has been on a terrific run with Norwich when he was there on loan. He's a good player coming forward, and I'm looking forward to working with him," added Wilson.

Prutton, 28, is out of contract with Colchester at the end of June. Hull-born, he has played for Nottingham Forest, Southampton and Leeds, and made 25 appearances for the England u21 side.

Wilson said: "David's played at the highest level so we know that he can bring something to us."
