Trundle Signs Until The End Of The Season

Trundle Signs Until The End Of The Season

Bristol City striker Lee Trundle has extended his loan spell with Swansea City until the end of the season.

It's a big boost for the club as the 33 year-old has proved he can still score goals at this level. He's only started one game since returning to the Liberty Stadium, but in 9 substitute appearances he's scored 5 goals and is the club's joint top scorer along with Darren Pratley.

Trundle hardly needed to think about staying at Swansea City, and he now hopes to end his career at the club where he enjoyed his spell during his career.

He told the Evening Post:

'When I came here I had my mind set on extending the loan and now that's happened the next stage is to try to win a contract,' he said.

'I'm going to do everything I can between now and the end of the season to make that happen.

'I want to finish my career with Swansea and if I look after myself, I can go on for a good few years.


Trundle also added that he knows he's playing for a permanent contract in the Summer so hopefully the goals will continue to come from the scouser:

'I think I've still got a lot to offer. This is the fittest I've ever been all through my career.

'I've been training hard and watching my diet, working hard on the health side of things.

'I left Swansea once because I had to for my career, but I realise going away was the wrong decision.

'Swansea are a club I love especially with the relationship I have with the fans and I want to stay.'

'Being under that kind of pressure can start to get you down, it's like being on trial every day,' added Trundle.

'It doesn't matter what I'd done before, I had to impress a new manager and the fans all over again.

'But if you want something enough you can handle that pressure. The last thing I wanted to do was go back to Bristol City because I wasn't enjoying training and I wasn't enjoying matches and that was killing me.

'I feel more relaxed now, but I still know I'm playing for a contract next season.'

if he keeps up the good work i see no reason why we shouldn't keep him, he's still a class act at this level.

Glad to see Trundle staying a bit longer, good to see romance is still alive in the game, all sentiment asside though i think it's a good bit of sense, come the end of the season the club has the option to sign him to a contract, the club cant lose, if he flops he's gone, if he impresses, as he is now, then offer him a deal, Sousa needs to start him though.

33! He seems to have been around for ever! Not quite realised his potential though in my book!
