Johnson: You Can Keep Trundle If You Want

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson says Swansea City can keep Lee Trundle if they wish to keep him.

His loan move from Ashton Gate ends on December 31st, a day before the transfer window opens and there's no hint from the Swans yet as to whether or not they'll look to keep him.

The Bristol City manager says there's a deal in place if they want to keep him, but Paulo Sousa has to decide whether or not to agree to keep the scouser at the Liberty Stadium.

Lee Trundle has been quoted in the press on more than one occasion that he has no idea where his future lies.

Johnson said:

'We haven't spoken to Swansea recently, because it's out of our hands. At the moment, the deal is up to December 31 and no longer.

'But we do have a deal in place where they can take him for the second half of the season if they want to. There is a deal on the table and they know what it is.

'It's something we spoke about in the summer before Lee went out to Swansea and there is an agreement built in that he can stay longer.

'But that is not our decision to make and we're in a position where we are waiting for Swansea to come to us and say whether they want him or not.'

'Lee has nailed his colours to the mast and said he wants to stay if he can. I know what he wants and I understand that.

'He seems to have played a bit of a cameo role since going out on loan and I cannot say what the people at Swansea want at this moment in time. We will have to wait and see.'

Paulo Sousa says he is keen to continue strengthening his squad to boost their chances of a play-off place in the Championship. But Lee Trundle has only made one start since he joined and 5 substitute appearances, and it doesn't look likely that he'll be kept on in the new year.

Should we keep Lee Trundle or let him return to Bristol City when his loan spell ends? Share your views below or in the forum here
