Cristian Montano could be set to join former Hammer Paolo Di Canio at Swindon - less than a week after being recalled from a loan spell at Notts County.
The 19-year-old winger had proved to be a huge success under Martin Allen - another former Hammer - at Meadow Lane prior to being recalled last weekend, following County's 3-0 win over Hartlepool in which the Columbian scored.
It was generally accepted that Montano had returned to the Boleyn Ground as cover for the injured David Bentley, who has returned to Tottenham after learning that a knee injury will keep him out of action for around six months.
However that would appear not to be the case with news that Di Canio is poised to take the in-form midfielder to the County Ground - and to a division a tier below that in which Montano has so far impressed this season, by scoring four goals in 11 outings.
Speaking about Montano's input during his short spell with Notts County, manager Allen said: "He has been a model professional. Down to earth, humble and hard working. He's very popular with the staff and players."
