Midfielder Owain Tudur-Jones says he’ll be 100% committed to Swindon Town during his one-month loan spell at the League One club.

The former Bangor City player has found it difficult to get game time at Swansea City and has been looking to go out on loan since the start of the year.

He had the opportunity to join fellow Championship club Sheffield Wednesday who were interested, but Martinez rejected the move in January.

With the likes of Joe Allen and Darren Pratley in action again, Tudur-Jones is struggling to even make the bench and is looking for first team football to boost his chances with the Welsh international team.

Tudur-Jones told the Official Site:

‘I travelled up to Swindon on Sunday and trained with them for the first time on Monday morning.

‘With Swindon dropping into the relegation zone over the weekend it’s a difficult time for the football club. But I spoke to manager Danny Wilson and he believes he has the players to get out of trouble.

‘If I can add something to the squad to help them, that’s what I will be looking to do.

‘I need game time because my opportunities at Swansea have been limited. I haven’t played as many games as I would have liked which is disappointing, but that’s the way football is sometimes.

‘I will be 100 per cent committed to Swindon while I’m there. There will be a lot of pressure on the games, but I think that will help me because nobody can go through the motions.

‘There will be a lot riding on each game, so it means I will have to perform.’


Since his move in 2005, Tudur-Jones has been troubled with on-going knee injuries which has hindered his progress here and limiting him to just 26 League starts at the club.
