Rhodes hints at permanent Swindon move
1:04pm Friday 13th October 2006 in Sport
BRENTFORD winger Alex Rhodes believes he may turn his loan to Swindon Town into a more permanent arrangement.
The 24-year old joined the League Two outfit on a month's loan despite already making 11 appearances with the Bees.
Brentford boss Leroy Rosenior claimed the wideman needed more first team experience but Rhodes says he's looking forward to the challenge and may stay longer at the County Ground.
He said: "I was starting at the beginning of the season for Brentford but then I hurt my back and it has been a bit of a struggle getting my place back.
"When I heard Dennis Wise wanted me at Swindon it wasn't really a difficult decision. Swindon are a big club with ambitions and I am looking forward to playing first-team football again.
"I've been brought to Swindon to score some goals and to help Town get into the top spot and out of this league.
"They get big crowds and have got a high profile management team in Gus Poyet and Dennis Wise.
"I don't know what will happen after the month, I will leave the two clubs to sort thing like that out but I am sure I could get used to playing here, so I am going to concentrate on scoring goals and the rest will sort itself out."
