Lee Power, chairman of League One side Swindon Town, has confirmed that the club are trying to get Southampton defender Jack Stephens to return to Wiltshire.
Stephens, 20, impressed during his brief loan spell at the County Ground towards the end of last season making ten appearances as the Robins finished eighth.
He is yet to make a senior appearance for Southampton since he arrived at St Mary’s from Plymouth Argyle in 2011.
The centre back is only expected to be returning to the County Ground on loan.
Power is keen to set up an affiliation with the Saints as Swindon’s partnership with Tottenham Hotspur has ended following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood who is closely connected to the Swindon owner.
Swindon and Southampton are set to meet in a friendly on July 21st and more members of the Premier League side’s academy could be set for a brief stint in Swindon in the near future.
