Gomez Deal Depends On Espanyol's Future

Gomez Deal Depends On Espanyol's Future

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez has told Wales Online that 'whether Espanyol get relegated or not will play a massive, massive part in Jordi`s future.'

The midfielder has proved to be a massive hit in the Championship this season and has caught the eye of a number of Premiership and Championship clubs who are all showing an interest in the youngster.

Martinez is obviously keen to sign Gomez on a permanent deal but it's becoming ever more unlikely that he could well be snapped by a top flight club, willing to bid Espanyol a few million for his services.

Espanyol are currently struggling at the bottom of La Liga, and if they do get relegated, they may well feel the need to recall him.

Martinez said:

"I don`t really feel much pressure to tie him down yet,"

"It will all be sorted in the summer because a lot depends on how Espanyol finish their season.

"Whether Espanyol get relegated or not will play a massive, massive part in Jordi`s future. We want him to stay, but all three parties need to agree.

"Jordi`s opinions will play a big part and he is making the right noises. He has always said that he wanted to stay, but, if Espanyol feel he has to stay with them, there`s nothing much we can do."

"We know the way we play helps when attracting players. They want to stay attached to our footballing philosophy because it allows them to enjoy their football.

"The fact people are talking about Jordi so much shows how well we have done with him. We were the team that brought him into British football and I`m very happy with the way he has progressed here."
