Wrexham were linked with a swoop for Swindon Town midfielder earlier this season.

Wrexham were linked with a move for Swindon Town midfielder Saidou Khan earlier this season.
Wrexham reportedly considered a move for the fellow League Two player ahead of the January transfer window, according to Football Insider.
Khan, 28, ended up remaining at the County Ground past the deadline early this winter.

However, it is perhaps a good thing that the Red Dragons did not sign him in the end, as he is now out for the rest of the season due to an injury.

Swindon’s interim manager, Gavin Gunning, recently informed the Swindon Advertiser: “Saidou Khan is out for the season. I know the fans have been critical of his [Khan’s] performances, but he has been dealing with this injury for a while and has continued to play, and you can see how it has significantly impacted his performance.”

Khan joined the Robins in 2022, having previously played for Tooting & Mitcham, Maidstone United, and Chesterfield in non-league.

His injury is unfortunate for both him and Swindon, and he hopes to recover fully for the following season.

The Gambia-born player would have added competition and depth to Wrexham’s midfield. He would have had to compete with Andy Cannon and Tom O’Connor for a spot in their starting XI.

It would also have been disappointing if Phil Parkinson’s team had signed him only to have him out until the summer.
Khan is obviously still under contract at Swindon, and the Welsh club would have had to pay a transfer fee to bring him to the Racecourse Ground, which may have been a waste of money for them.

Wrexham have been savvy in their recruitment since their promotion from the National League last year.

They’ve adjusted nicely to life in the Football League and are seeking for promotion to League One.

They are presently in third place, sharing the top three with Stockport County and Mansfield Town. Last time out, the Red Dragons overcame the latter 2-0 thanks to a brace from striker Paul Mullin.

Wrexham’s next match is away to Doncaster Rovers Thursday evening, where they want to maintain their momentum.
