Lee Peacock looks set for a move to League Two side Swindon Town today, despite heavy interest from Paul Merson’s Walsall.

The midlands club were favourites for the former Wednesday striker’s services, but it now seems the former Bristol City man will opt for Swindon Town, which is closer to his wife’s home on the South Coast.

Peacock had his contract terminated by mutual consent yesterday, so that a move to another club could go through as soon as possible, and it looks as though he made be registered in time to play this weekend.

Peacock was signed by Chris Turner in the summer of 2005, and was a big part in the Owls promotion from League One last season. He made 57 appearances for the club, but only managed to net nine goals in all.
