EFL League Two club Swindon Town has reportedly signed Nigerian left-back Ali Koiki on loan for the remainder of the 2018/19 season. 

Swindon confirmed the news on their official website that the youngster would be joining them on loan from English Premier League outfit, Burnley. 

Despite being on the bench for Premier League matches against Arsenal and West Ham in December 2018, Koiki is reportedly in line to make his professional debut for Swindon against Lincoln City on Saturday, January 12. 

In his first words after signing the contract, Koiki said: ''I’m just really excited to get started – it’s a new chapter in my career and I’m eager to see how things go. It’s the beginning of a journey for me, playing men’s football so really want to get things going.

''The men’s game is spoken about a lot and it’s a big step up from youth football to men’s football so I want to make sure I get into it and make an impact.''

The 19-year-old represented the youth team of Crystal Palace prior to his move to Burnley in the summer of 2016.
