King has brought Kneissl in from Premiership side Chelsea following the news that hit-man Sam Parkin would be out for at least a fortnight with a knee ligament injury.
The Robins boss believes the former Eintracht Frankfurt man has a chance to impress and earn a place in the side that faces Stockport County at The County Ground on Saturday.
"I watched him play the other night in an awful game for their (Chelsea) reserves," King told the Swindon Evening Advertiser.
"Gwyn Williams at Chelsea said the lad could come here to train for two days with a view to me looking at him.
"The boy showed a wonderful attitude when I spoke to him on the phone and said he'd like to come.
"If my mind was 100 percent sure, I would have taken him on loan. Credit then to Chelsea and the kid that both are prepared to let me see him first.
"It would only be a short-term loan deal, a month, as I hope Sam Parkin will be back soon while the kid is going to the Under-20 World Championships with Germany next month.
"It's something I can move on today with a view to the game at the weekend.
"The only problem is that I now have two Sebastiens (with Sebastien Ruster) to shout at on the training field."
