Rangel Next To Stall On Contract Negotiations?

Despite Angel Rangel telling the News of the World that his dream is to reach the Premiership with Swansea City, the Sunday newspaper are speculating that he's following Leon Britton and stalling on a contract extension.

This week we were led to believe that the Spaniard's contract, which expires in June, would be automatically extended by 12 months when he plays his 23rd game for the club, so far he's featured in 22.

However, the News of the World are stirring up more doubts about a player's Swansea City future - something they love to do for a story.

Leon Britton has said he will not decide on his future until the end of the season, and therefore has yet to extend his contract, which, like Angel Rangel, expires in the Summer.

And judging from Rangel's comments in today's News of the World, the defender seems to be following in the footsteps of Leon.

The lack of early contract extension talks amongst some of the playerssurely proves how important it is that we realise our potential in the Championship league. Many fans believe that we're nowhere near prepared for the Premiership, and they're right. But, opportunities to get to the top flight should never be ignored. More and more of our players realise the Premier League potential and hopefully we ourselves can deliver that to them in the near future, rather than seeing some of them leave on a free.

'I'm not thinking about my future. I'm just focusing on this season. I'm a Swansea player and I'm 100 per cent committed to the club.

'I've heard rumours about other clubs being interested in me, like Celtic, but I don't take them seriously. It would be a mistake to do that.

'The contract situation isn't on my mind. I'll look at my future at the end of the season. You never know what's going to happen.

'My dream is to get to the Premier League with Swansea. That would be the best solution.

'Jason Scotland and Jordi Gomez had to leave Swansea to play in the Premier League.

'But I want to get there with this club - that's my dream.

'Swansea gave me the chance to play in British football and to become a professional footballer.

'It's the club I play for and a club I love. That's why winning promotion to the Premier League with them would mean so much. Every player wants to play at the highest level and in this country that's the Premier League.'


Who knows what will happen in the Summer, but one thing we do know for sure that it'll be another interesting pre-season.
