Anderson - This Is Where I Want To Be

Attacker On Why He Committed His Future To Town

16 January 2018

Keshi Anderson revealed that no other thought crossed his mind other than making his move to Swindon Town a permanent one.

The highly-rated attacker committed his future to the club earlier today by putting pen to paper on a two-and-half-year deal after the Reds paid an undisclosed fee to Crystal Palace for his services.

And, with promotion the main goal this season, Anderson made it clear that the decision to make SN1 his permanent home was a no-brainer.

"At the moment there wouldn't be any other place that I would rather be," he told iFollow STFC exclusively.

"I've enjoyed my time here so far and with the way it is going hopefully we can keep pushing on and get promotion, which is what all the boys want.

"It was 100% an easy decision to stay.

"Everything about Swindon since I've arrived has been very warming, very welcoming, the staff, the fans, the players and I only knew Kaiyne Woolery and Matty Taylor when I came in but it didn't take me long to get on with all the boys.

"The boys all live within five minutes of each other so we're all out for dinner, spending time together and just enjoying what we're doing.

"I've been getting on with all the boys, the staff and everyone in and around the football club and it is always nice knowing you've got a home somewhere.

"This is where I want to be.

"We all know where we want to go and everyone is really pushing towards that.

"Looking at the table everything is very, very tight at the moment and I think with our recent results it is just a case of keep going.

"We've won our last two at home and it is about forgetting what has happened in the first-half of the season with the home form and carrying on from where we've started as of now.

"We want to keep going as strong as we have been."

And Keshi has made it clear that he wants to improve both his goals and assists tally in the second-half of the season as he looks to fire Town towards their ultimate goal of promotion.

"I feel like I've done enough for the team overall with my performances and coming into the second-half of the season hopefully I can start getting a few more goals and assists," he added.

"I feel I've done quite well with the assists, I'm up there with Matty (Taylor) when it comes to creating chances but goals wise I've had a lot of chances where I've been left thinking how has the keeper saved that or how has the defender got in the way of that.

"I just feel like that little bit of luck will change and hopefully the next one will probably just hit off my shin and go in!

"The system at the moment helps me get on the ball a lot more and it allows me to express myself. Obviously the more I see the ball the more confident I am going to be in games and the more chances I am going to create or be on the end of."
