Dan Kemp said that he remains fully committed to Swindon Town despite the uncertainty of his future beyond the opening of the January transfer window.

The man on loan from Milton Keynes Dons has 16 goal involvements in his 18 starts for Swindon after a blistering start to the season.

Kemp said that he could not be sure what would happen to him once his parent club have the opportunity to recall him in January, but he felt it would be disrespectful to not perform at his best level for Town.

He said: “It is a really difficult situation because all I can focus on is the here and now and that is all my focus is every day.

“The situation is out of my control, but it is the case that I am fully committed to the club.

“The manager, Hats [Wayne Hatswell], and the staff have been brilliant with me, and so for me to give them five per cent less than my full commitment would be disrespectful to them and to the fans.

“I think they can see that from the way that I play, I am fully committed here, and I am loving my time here. I can honestly say that from the bottom of my heart.

“It is a case of keep trying to do what I am doing and staying focused on the mission we have here and what we are trying to achieve.

“Anything external is out of my control and I will deal with it when it happens.”

Between his spell at Hartlepool United last season and Swindon this term, Kemp has found the back of the net 20 times in 2023, and the 24-year-old credited Town heavily for his ability to shine.

He said: “It is about a bit of everything really, work behind the scenes, the mindset that I want to score goals and create assists, getting in the right areas, believing in myself, and taking opportunities.

“I have got a team here, which is the reason I have blossomed this season, that plays to my strengths massively, the position I am playing, the manager, the staff.

“The manager and Hats have given me that massive freedom to go and express myself, get on the ball, and be a big player for the group.

“Off the back of my Hartlepool loan, knowing that I could do it was a massive factor in my career and now I have taken that step on.”
