Bradford City boss Gary Bowyer says that Eoin Doyle's sale to Swindon Town was "in the best interests" of the club.

Bradford City boss Gary Bowyer has said that the decision to sell Eoin Doyle to Swindon Town is "in the best interests" of the club.

The 31-year-old rejoined the Robins on a permanent deal yesterday, having scored an impressive 23 goals in 22 games for the side during a loan spell in the first half of the season.

The striker had previously expressed his disappointment at being recalled by Bradford and had just six months remaining on his existing contract before the Swindon switch was confirmed.

In a short statement on the club's website, Bowyer said: "Throughout the course of any transfer window, you have to act in the best interests of the club, which we feel we have done with this agreement."

Doyle's goals in the first half of the campaign have helped Swindon to top of the League Two standings.
