Oxford striker James Constable has turned down the chance to talk to League Two rivals Swindon about a move to the County Ground.

The 27-year-old had been given permission to discuss terms with the Robins after an improved offer was made for his services on Thursday.

However, the former Kidderminster forward declined the opportunity to meet with the Wiltshire outfit and will be back in training at Oxford on Friday.

Swindon's interim chairman Jeremy Wray told his club's official website: "Since we have been given permission to speak to the player, we have been informed that James Constable does not wish to pursue those talks.

"We respect his decision and will now concentrate on other transfer targets."

Constable used his Twitter account later on Thursday to say: "This has been one of the toughest days I have had in my career, never wanted to leave the football club, it means everything to me! #OUFC"
