Luke Freeman: On the Robins' radar for quite some time

Cotterill has expressed his delight at bringing in the versatile former Stevenage forward for an undisclosed fee.

The Robins boss told the club's official website: "He's someone we've been keeping tabs on for some time and I'm delighted we've been able to bring Luke on board.

"I've wanted to add a left-sided player to the squad and Luke can actually play in a variety of positions. He can play on the left, on the right and cut in, or play in a midfield three.

"In truth it's probably going to take six to 12 months to work out his best position, but that'll come by working with him in training.

"He's a good, young, exciting player. He's an excellent addition to the football club for the short term and long term."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
