Alan Tate: Swansea defender loaned out to Yeovil

The 30-year-old trained with the Championship newcomers on Monday and is set to feature in their friendly against Exeter on Tuesday evening.

Tate initially joined Swansea on loan from Manchester United, where he started his career as a trainee, in 2002 and played a key part in their rise through the divisions to the Premier League.

He has made 303 appearances for the Swans but only featured four times in the Premier League last season and was loaned out to Leeds for two months.

Tate has now been deemed surplus to requirements by Swansea boss Michael Laudrup, but his experience is sure to be a valuable asset to Yeovil manager Gary Johnson as his side embark on their first season in English football's second tier.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
