SWINDON Town are no longer on the English Football League's embargo reporting service.

Clubs under embargo are named on the EFL's dedicated page, along with the reason the club has been hit with the penalty.

The EFL website states that clubs will remain under embargo “until such time as it has met its existing financial obligations and/or the club has rectified the relevant breach of EFL regulation(s).”

Town had been placed under a transfer embargo last summer for failing to comply with five EFL regulations but promptly took steps to rectify those once Clem Morfuni had been confirmed as owner.

Due to the previous regime failing to pay players and staff, Town were prevented from paying a fee for contracted or loan players for one year.

CEO Rob Angus had previously said the club was prepared to ride out the campaign under embargo as the restrictions only last for a relatively short amount of time.

Speaking to Adver Sport back in September, Angus said: “The club took the £1.04 million loan from the EFL and Premier League.

"The EFL loan comes with restrictions on it in terms of wages we can pay and transfer fees we can pay. But it is an interest-free loan which is payable over a four-year period.

“While we’re still working through skeletons in the closet and working through £4 million of inherited debt, financially to be paying that back early is probably not the most prudent thing to do.

“We’ve managed to build a pretty strong squad within the restrictions. The restrictions and embargo only lasts for one season and then it’s lifted, even if you haven’t re-paid the loan in full.

“So while you’ve got an interest-free loan of £1.04 million that you can re-pay over four years, the restrictions only last for one season.”

Both Swindon and the EFL were approached for a response, but the governing body said it "does not comment on individual embargoes" while Town declined to comment.

Town's League Two rivals Scunthorpe United and Oldham Athletic - both of which were relegated to the National League - remain listed on the EFL's service, as do Championship clubs Reading and Derby County.
