SWINDON Town have held talks with former Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger, according to a report in Wiltshire.

The Swindon Advertiser reports that the club’s chairman, Jed McCrory, has held discussions over a move to the County Ground.

Ranger parted ways with Newcastle “by mutual consent” in March. He had joined the club in 2008.

The 22-year-old – whose career at St James’s Park was blighted by a series of off-the-field incidents – scored two goals for United.

A number of other clubs are also reportedly interested in signing the Londoner.

Ranger appeared at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court last week charged with raping a woman in a Tyneside hotel in January.
