Martinez Rules Out Loan Move For Tudur-Jones

Martinez Rules Out Loan Move For Tudur-Jones

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez says a loan move for midfielder Owain Tudur-Jones is 'not something I'm considering.'

by Czech_Jack
"I thought he'd be more than happy to send him to gain more experience."
The young welshman has shown his frustration recently over a lack of first team football at the Liberty Stadium, and expressed his desires to go out on loan.

He also showed concerns over his international career, and that he needed to be playing regularly to boost his chances of making it into John Toshack's squad.

However, Martinez said he shouldn't worry about his future Wales career, and instead concentrate on his daily work:

'Owain has been distracted too often by the Wales situation,'

'He has been called up when he wasn't playing for his club, when he was injured, and that can put some doubts in your head.

'Every time he isn't playing for Swansea he is getting concerned about his Welsh career and that is wrong.

'Nobody should be thinking that far ahead, you should be concentrating on your daily work.'

'He has had two difficult seasons with injuries and obviously he would love to see himself playing week in, week out.

'But sometimes in football it takes time to get to 100 per cent in all areas.

'Physically Owain is 110 per cent now, but sharpness, decision-making and tactical awareness will come with a little bit of time.

'Owain is a great professional — he is always a 10 in training — and he is also a special man,' he added.

'He is a fantastic talent who I see playing a massive role for Swansea City.'

'I want Owain to be happy and I speak with him often enough to know how he feels.

'Everyone wants play well in every game, but that's not football.

'If you look back, Owain has been improving every day since we came back for pre-season and that's what I'm looking at.

'At the moment, sending him out on loan is not something I am considering.'


Owain Tudur-Jones has found it difficult here ever since he arrived in 2006. A number of long-term injuries that never seemed to go away have hindered his progress.

he's our backup midfield so we need to keep him really, we might get an injury to allen, pratley or britton. i cant see him having a long future here though, league 1 player at best.
