Swindon Town's longest-serving player, Ellis Iandolo has put pen to paper on a new contract with the Football Club.

After what has been an impressive start to the 2021-22 season, Iandolo has extended his relationship with Town.

First signed by the club in the summer of 2015, the versatile player has established himself as a key figure for the Reds and he has racked up over 100 appearances for the team.

He has fitted perfectly into Head Coach Ben Garner's system and has emerged as a key cog in a team fighting at the top of the EFL Sky Bet League Two table, while Iandolo has also displayed his leadership qualities on and off the field this season.

Showing his love and commitment to the Reds, Iandolo will now feature as a big piece in the bright future of Swindon Town and his extension is a notable piece of business for the club heading into the busy festive period.

Ben Chorley, Swindon Town's Director of Football, said: "The club are delighted to get this done so early. Ellis is our longest-serving player, he has come on enormously this season, sustaining a level of consistency that is needed to be successful.

"Ellis has been part of the club for a long time now, we feel he understands what we are trying to build in the short and long-term future. 

"We wish him all the best for the upcoming seasons."

After putting pen to paper on his new deal, Iandolo revealed just how delighted he was to secure his future with the Reds.

"It means a lot," Iandolo told swindontownfc.co.uk.

"The club has been a big part of my life since I arrived, there has been a lot of ups and downs but the club is definitely going in the right direction and it can only go up from here.

"It was a no-brainer for me to sign this extension.

"My family has developed a relationship with the club, my little brothers and my dad come to watch all the games over the years I've been here and for me to sign this deal means an awful lot to them as well.

"I want to keep improving and being part of the future success. 

"For me it is about doing what I can to help the club and the team get better."
