Brodie Signs

Colin Addison has been back into the transfer market today to sign Steve Brodie from Scarborough on a free transfer until the end of the season. Brodie follows Terry Evans and Neil Sharp as Addison’s permanent signings.

Brodie who is 28 has been a target of Addison since he arrived at Swansea back in September and this is his third attempt at getting the striker into the club. Brodie is likely to make his Swansea debut against Hartlepool a week on Friday having not signed in time to make his debut in front of the Sky cameras against QPR on Sunday.

Speaking to the official site, Brodie said ” I am a 100 per-center! The way I play, I’ll be hoping to create goals for the side, as well as scoring them. My strike rate is one in four, and I’ve been top scorer over the last few seasons at Scarborough. I would have liked to score more, all players would, but looking at the team’s league positions over those seasons, it’s evident that enough chances weren’t being created.”

Meanwhile, we hear that John Shuttleworth has been in Reading today trying to secure the services of Nathan Tyson until the end of the season. This to me seems a little strange on two counts. Firstly, a little birdie tells me that Addison does not necessarily want to keep Tyson and secondly why try and secure another striker when Addison has bought in his man? One can only assume that our Chief Executive is not speaking to our manager at this moment in time.

Finally, veteran striker Steve Watkin is believed to be a target for League of Wales champions Barry Town who are keen to take the man, still famous for his goal against Arsenal for Wrexham in 1992.

Looks like we may see more transfer news in the coming days
