Swindon Town have agreed a deal to sign Colchester midfielder David Prutton on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old, who only joined the U's in January, has signed a two-year contract with the option of a third.

The former Southampton, Nottingham Forest and Leeds United player won 25 caps for England's Under-21 side.

"Having seen the team that got to the play-off final I would like to think I can add to it. Its very positive," he told BBC Wiltshire.

Prutton linked up with his new team-mates, including fellow recent signing Michael Rose, at Swindon's first pre-season training session on Monday.

There were options but when I spoke to the manager and weighed the whole thing up it seemed like a good place to be

He already knows goalkeeper David Lucas and fellow midfielder Jonathan Douglas from his time at Leeds and says they played a major part in him deciding to move to Wiltshire.

"They said the ethos and atmosphere is great. Good management team, treat you in the right way," he said.

"It seems a very refreshing place to come to."

Swindon's opening day opponents Brighton also spoke to Prutton and he said: "There were options but when I spoke to the manager and weighed the whole thing up it seemed like a good place to be."

Prutton came through the ranks at Forest before moving to the Premier League with Southampton in 2003 for £2.5m.

He returned to the City Ground on loan four years later and then joined Leeds ahead the 2007-08 term.
