Robinson Given 10 Days To Sign On Or Leave

Robinson Given 10 Days To Sign On Or Leave

Roberto Martinez has given his strongest warning yet to Andy Robinson over his contract offer at the club, his message is simple make up your mind in 10 days or leave.

Speculation has been growing in the last few weeks over the state of contract talks with Robinson's agent Neil Sang at the club. Club officials have offered the player in the region of £3000 a week but it is thought that the former Tranmere Rovers player wants double that figure.

It is not the first time that talks over contract extensions with the player have broken down. In July 2006, Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins revelled the same problems over the difference over the remuneration package. Jenkins was quoted as saying "Andy's agent and I are quite a way apart in what we think the level of his contract should be."

It firmly seems that there has been very little movement from that stance. Making 46 appearances and scoring 10 goals last season, Robinson has seen the tide of feeling going against him as the stand off over his contract terms continues.

What is not in dispute is the resolve of Martinez over the issue and the Spaniard believes it is a "No Brainier" for the midfielder to accept the terms given to him.

Martinez Told The SWEP:

"I see it very clearly.Andy Robinson has improved massively in the last 10 months from a tactical point of view, the way we play really suits him and we have got a new challenge for him next season.

'For me it's a no-brainer - he should stay at Swansea City for many years to come.Obviously, the problem is that you get many other people involved in these deals and that makes it a bit harder.

I don't see this as a negative situation. It's normal in football and we respect Andy because of what he has done for this club."

'That's why we're prepared to give him another 10 days, but then we need to find a solution.It should be 10 days' maximum because that's the only fair way for both parties.'Andy is a great character for Swansea City and he has tremendous talent"

"He came on trial when we were in League Two and for him to play a massive role for us in the Championship would be a fantastic story.

'I just hope that the football side of things is morimportantt than anything Andy is offered or showed (elsewhere).If he was to leave, I don't think he would be loved like Swansea City love him. I don't think anyone can improve him the way we can or give him the important role we will.'



Season Tickets have gone on sale to new new and renewal applicants yesterday.

He is a big player for us. £3000 isn't a huge amount for a team in the CCC but we don't want to pay over the odds. It is a tough one but I hope he stays.
