League One transfer latest: Swindon reject bid for ex-Spurs youngster

Bramall Lane Sheffield United

All the latest summer transfer news from League One...

Notts County were dealt a blow over the weekend after star striker Jimmy Spencer suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, ruling him out for the entire season - and today didn't bring good news either. Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski has left Meadow Lane to join Ipswich Town on a two year deal after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the former Southampton stopper.

"I’m really happy to be an Ipswich Town player," said Bialkowski. "It’s been going on for a while and when that happens, you can get worried sometimes but I was always confident it would get done. I worked with Malcolm [Webster, Town goalkeeping coach], at Southampton and Hearts and it’s great to be back working with him again. He’s a great guy and probably the best coach I have worked with. He rang me a year ago and said Ipswich were watching me and would keep an eye on me through the season," the Pole added.

Swindon Town don't have the biggest budget in League One this summer, and chairman Lee Power's admission that the club won't be able to spend much money has left them susceptible to bids for their star players. That's proven to be the case as promoted Rotherham United have had a £600,000 bid for Australian midfielder Massimo Luongo rejected. The former Spurs man was name in Australia's squad for the World Cup, but the Robins are determined to keep their star midfielder at the County Ground.

Elsewhere, Sheffield United have added yet another player to their ranks as Peterborough United right back Craig Alcock has joined the Blades after leaving the Posh at the end of last season.

"We are delighted to get Craig, who has experience of the top end of this division and also the Championship in recent times," said manager Nigel Clough. "A major advantage is he can play anywhere across the back four and that will be hugely beneficially through what is a very, very long season."
