Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts joins Swindon Town on loan

Veteran Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts joins League One outfit Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts has joined League One outfit Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old has not played a competitive game for the Championship side since November and was made available for loan in January.

The Wales international had been linked with a move to Coventry City but instead opted to sign for their promotion-chasing league rivals.

Robins manager Mark Cooper told BBC Sport: "With nine games to go, we need a calming voice on the pitch.

"We're in a position where we need to be winning games and that's a big pressure for a young group. I just felt we needed an older head, someone who had been there and done it.

"Sam did it with Wolves last year. He captained the side with a record points tally, so I think he's ideal for us."

Ricketts is out of contract in the summer and has only made four Championship appearances so far this season.
