Swindon Town are pleased to announce their sixth signing of the summer with the addition of Amine Linganzi.

The hard-hitting midfielder has joined on a free transfer from Portsmouth, subject to EFL and FA approval.

Linganzi joins Chris Robertson, James Dunne, Paul Mullin, Ben Purkiss and Olly Lancashire at The County Ground, and he will provide manager Dave Flitcroft with further options in the middle of the park.

Beginning his career with Saint-Etienne in France, the once hot prospect went on to have spells with Blackburn Rovers, Preston North End, Accrington Stanley and Gillingham, before linking up with Portsmouth last season.

He made 16 appearances as Pompey won promotion to the Sky Bet League One and the central midfielder has also represented Congo at international level.

After what is another significant capture for the football club, Linganzi now can’t wait to get started with Town.

“I’m very happy to be here and it is a great opportunity to play for the best club in League Two,” he told exclusively.

“I’m really happy to have signed for the new manager, he did everything possible to bring me here and I hope we are going to have a successful season.

“The aim is to go to League One and I believe we will be successful this season.

“The manager will give us our identity. League Two is a tough league but when you work hard you get your rewards.”
