Jenkins Urges Trundle To Earn Permanent Deal

Jenkins Urges Trundle To Earn Permanent Deal

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is urging Lee Trundle to earn himself a permanent contract with the Swans in the Summer.

Jenkins says the deal is almost complete to keep the striker at the Liberty Stadium until the end of the season, all that needs to be done is finalising it with Bristol City.

And he hasn't ruled out Trundle staying beyond this season, as he's a free agent in the Summer.

Jenkins told the Evening Post:

'I will be speaking to Lee today to finalise things with him, and I think he has made it clear that he will be happy to stay,'

'I have then just got to confirm with Bristol City that the original loan deal we had in place will keep going until May.

'The deal was always split in two, so it's just a case of rubber-stamping things so that Lee will continue to be our player.'

'Every player wants to play regularly but, while he hasn't been involved as much as he would have liked, I think Lee has enjoyed his time back with us,'

'He has enjoyed being back around the club and, having spoken to Paulo, I think Lee accepts the role he has played.

'He would like to have played more games, and it might well be that he does that in the second half of the campaign.

'And it's certainly not out of the question that Lee will be with us beyond this season.

'The way things were set up, it is far simpler now to extend the loan deal until the end of the season.

'But Lee will be a free agent in the summer and we will look at things then.

'There's certainly an incentive there for him if he wants to stay at Swansea.'
