New Swindon signing Etienne Esajas is hoping his recent move to the County Ground can resurrect his career.

Esajas started only 32 games in a three-year period with Sheffield Wednesday before being released by the South Yorkshire club in 2010 and has since made only nine competitive appearances, for Helmond Sport in the second tier of his native Holland.

Nevertheless, Esajas is hopeful his move to Swindon can be a turning point in his career and told the Swindon Advertiser: "I'm happy to sign a deal.

"I play football and I love football and now it's up to me to work hard and show everybody I can be the player that everybody thinks I am.

"I had to settle for a deal in Holland because the season was already started so I wasn't really happy about it but I had to keep my head down and I worked hard.

"I need to show the manager that he trusts in me so I need to give the trust back. There's one gaffer and he wants to be on top so we have to do that."
