Transfer : Portsmouth – Swindon Town


Danny Rose


Portsmouth Football Club can announce that Danny Rose has left the club by mutual consent and signed for Swindon.

The 30-year-old midfielder arrived on the south coast in the summer of 2016 and netted five goals in 64 appearances for the club.

He was a key member of the side that secured the League Two title in his first season at Fratton Park.

Rose said: “There is a tinge of sadness because I had plenty of great times at Pompey and we achieved a lot over past few years.

“But it’s come to the point where I need to be playing games again and enjoying being out on the pitch.

“There’s a lot of quality at the club and I’m sure they’ll be doing everything they can to get over the line this season.

“The lads have put in a lot of hard work over the first half of the campaign and promotion would be nothing less than they deserve.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the fans for the incredible support they have given me.

“I have always been given fantastic backing – both when I was playing on the pitch and also through the more difficult times, like when I was out injured.
