Swindon Town have signed former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur defender Zeki Fryers on a two-year-deal.

The 26-year-old has joined on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Barnsley, who won promotion to the Championship last season.

Fryers has played in the Champions League and Europa League during his career and is excited about joining Swindon and believes in the vision Richie Wellens has for the club.

As well as spells at the Red Devils and Spurs, Fryers has also represented Standard Liege, Crystal Palace, Rotherham United and Ipswich Town.

He told the club's website: "I'm really happy. I can't wait to get started. Everything the Gaffer has said to me I believe in - I met him last week and we have the same vision."

The Swindon boss added: "It's a potentially fantastic signing - if you look at his career he's had some huge clubs. That shows the talent he's got. This is a good chance for him to play week-in-week-out and get some real consistency in his game."
