Swansea Remain Coy Over Contracts

Swansea Remain Coy Over Contracts

Swansea City have remained tight lipped over the contract extensions at the club as the season draws to a close.

It is thought that deals have been offered to players that Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez will be looking to retain for what is now looking likely to be a Championship campaign.

Amongst the players who's contracts are up in the summer include Thomas Butler , Andy Robinson, Alan Tate , Dennis Lawrence , Owain Tudur Jones , David Knight and Guillem Bauza. The list also includes youngsters Shaun McDonald and Scott Evans with club veterans Kevin Austin and Kristian O Leary rounding off the list.

Club officials however have confirmed contrary to the one year deals announced at the time of signing, Spaniards Andrea Orlandi and Angel Rangel are on two year deals and will remain at the club.

New signing Ashley Williams has been touted for a permanent move to the Liberty Stadium in the summer despite not featuring for his new club.Liverpool youngster Paul Anderson's future is also less than certain with Martinez confirming that he would like to retain the services of the pacy winger, either on another season long loan or on a permanent deal.

The Spaniard has refused to be drawn on personal situations of individual players and is firmly waiting for the season to close before making his moves to strengthen the Squad for next seasons campaign.

Martinez Spoke To The SWEP:

': 'I said we were going to change the way we did things in the past and we have done.A number of the players concerned signed contracts some time ago and a couple of others will depend on how we finish and where we are next season.

'There are probably going to be two or three players out of contract this summer, but it won't be like last year when players were uncertain about their futures.

'I don't like to keep people not knowing and that won't happen at this club anymore.I don't like to talk about personal situations when the season is going on,' he added.

'The fans have a right to be informed and as soon as the season ends, they will know what is happening.But at the moment it would distract us from the aim of getting Swansea City where we want to be.

I can assure you we are dealing with things. We have been talking all season about personal situations without making a scene.'


Swansea could secure promotion as early as Saturday evening as main promotion rivals Carlisle United and Doncaster Rovers were consigned to losses by fellow promotion rivals Leeds United and Nottingham Forest .

I'm looking forward to knowing who's signed and who isn't in the Summer. As you say there's dead wood to get rid of - players who won't be capable of playing in the CCC.
