Chianese trials with Swindon Town

Former Sydney FC forward Joel Chianese is in the UK trialling with English League One club Swindon Town.

Chianese, who was released by the Sky Blues, has most recently been playing for Sydney United in the NSW National Premier League.

The striker made his A-League debut for Sydney FC in 2011 and scored four goals from 18 appearances in the 2013-2014 season.

FourFourTwo understands Chianese is on a two-week trial.

If the 24-year-old joins the Robins he will be the third Aussie on their books along with Socceroo midfielder Massimo Luongo and on-loan Liverpool defender Brad Smith.

Swindon opened their League One campaign on the weekend with a 3-1 win over Scunthorpe – Luongo scoring the first goal
