MARK Bosnich has been linked with English third tier club Swindon Town but the former Socceroos keeper looks unlikely to be signing on at the County Ground.
Swindon have a rich heritage of welcoming Aussies with Dave Mitchell, Danny Invincibile, Gareth Edds, Mark Robertson and Royce Brownlie among those who have pulled on the red and white shirt in the last decade or so for the FourFourTwo-sponsored outfit.
A report in today's Swindon Advertiser newspaper says club chairman Andrew Fitton has enjoyed a chat with Bosnich but isn't expecting it to go any further.
Fitton told the Advertiser he had been introduced to Bosnich, not through his agent, but isn't sure whether he would want to perform in the third tier of English football.
"There were some discussion with Mark Bosnich, but I'm not expecting it to go anywhere. He is a guy who was once a very high quality goalkeeper, but who has since fallen on hard times, and you must never rule that out.
"But he has got to want to come here and I am not sure that is what he wants," said Fitton.
Bosnich earned plaudits during a brief stint for Central Coast Mariners last season before moving on to train with Sydney FC.
"It is most likely he will end up playing in Malaysia or Japan or somewhere like that," said the Swindon Town chairman.
