Yeovil have signed Swansea defender Alan Tate on loan until January 2.

Tate has joined up with his new team-mates and will be in the Glovers squad for their friendly at Exeter on Tuesday night.

The 30-year-old started his career at Manchester United and joined the Swans in 2004 following a series of loan spells.

Tate has represented Swansea in all four divisions of English football, making more than 300 appearances.

He returned from a broken leg last year and was sent out on loan to Leeds from November until January.
