Defender Cuthbert joins Swindon

Swindon have completed their fifth signing of the summer with the capture of Celtic defender Scott Cuthbert.

The Town had a previous bid for the 22-year-old rejected, and are thought to have paid in the region of £100,000 to get their man on a two-year deal.

Cuthbert was also wanted by St Mirren, where he spent last season on loan.

He told BBC Wiltshire: "I've known about Swindon's interest for a while and I'd talked to Danny Wilson and agreed I was going to come."

Cuthbert has captained the Scottish under-19 and 20 teams and has played for Scotland B.

He said: "There's a good squad of players and hopefully I can mix well with them and make a push to get further up the table and make it an exciting season."

Cuthbert joins Jonathan Douglas, Alan O'Brien, David Lucas and Gordon Greer in joining Swindon this summer.

The Scot can play at right or centre-back, and is on the club's pre-season tour of Austria, where Swindon drew 1-1 with Romanian Champions League side FC Cluj on Sunday.

Anthony McNamee scored Swindon's goal.

Swindon have taken former Millwall and Plymouth striker Cherno Samba to Austria on trial.
