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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
