Swansea boost strike force

Swansea City have completed the signing of former Tranmere striker Andy Robinson.

The 23-year-old has agreed a month-to-month deal after impressing in pre-season, when he scored three times in six games for Brian Flynn's side.

Robinson spent six months with Tranmere last season after scoring heavily in non-league football with Liverpool club Cammell Lairds.

However, despite impressing in the reserves, Robinson was unable to force his way into Tranmere's first-team plans and was released at the end of last season.

He now has a second chance to make the grade in the Nationwide League, although Robinson is unavailable for the next two games as he completes a suspension.

Flynn has also taken former West Ham defender Izzy Iriekpen on trial as he looks to find some much-needed defensive cover.

Kristian O'Leary is the only fit, experienced centre-half at the club, with club skipper Jason Smith out of action for up to eight weeks.

Iriekpen could link up with another former Upton Park player, Leon Britton, who made the permanent switch to the Vetch this summer.
