Di Canio led the Robins back to League One at the first attempt, winning the title after joining them following their relegation to League Two. He also took them to the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley.

The Swindon chairman, Jeremy Wray, said: "Paolo has been a spectacular success in his first year of club management.

"From the outset, he has given assurance of his commitments to Swindon as long as we had a shared goal of reaching the Championship within three years.

"Having agreed the budget for the upcoming season, the board has every confidence that Paolo will deliver this goal within the period of his new contract."

Wray said he believed Swindon fans could look forward to another exciting and successful season.
