Swindon Town are thrilled to announce the signing of defender Kieron Freeman on a short-term deal until the end of the season. The deal is subject to EFL and FA approval.

The 28-year-old has made nearly 200 EFL appearances and also played twice in the Premier League last season for Sheffield United.

During the 2018/19 season in which the Blades were promoted to the top-flight, Kieron featured twenty three times in Chris Wilder’s side.

In his early playing days, he started his professional career with Nottingham Forest where he was loaned out to Notts County and Mansfield Town.

Freeman then signed for Derby County in 2012 playing twenty five times over a period of three years for the Rams.

He was loaned out twice to the familiar Notts County and once to Mansfield during his time at Pride Park and also had a spell at Sheffield United where he signed permanently in 2015. He amassed over one hundred appearances for the Bladesmen, scoring fourteen goals.

At the end of the 2016/17 season, Kieron was named in the League One PFA team of the year.

The right-sided defender has also represented Wales at youth level and also appeared for the senior side under Ryan Giggs in November 2018.

Upon signing for Town, Kieron said:

"I'm buzzing to be here and to get it over the line and I can't wait to get started."

"I feel that this is a great opportunity for me, I've played here a few times and enjoyed playing here."

"They [management team] have been brilliant and really welcoming. They've told me what they want and what they want to do and I'm really excited."

We are delighted to be welcoming Kieron to the County Ground and look forward to his involvement for the remainder of the season in a Swindon shirt.
