MacDonald Looking To Sort Out His Future

MacDonald Looking To Sort Out His Future

Shaun MacDonald wants to resolve his long-term future as soon as possible.

The midfielder's contract runs out at the end of the season and the Wales Under 21 captain admits he has a decision to make.

'Swansea is my home town club but it's difficult to say I definitely want to stay when I don't know what the club is thinking.

'I know the gaffer, Mr Sousa is busy concentrating on the squad he has and pushing for promotion, but you can't help feel that you are not in future plans if it's March and you still don't know where you stand.

'Hopefully, Swansea will let me know soon. Even then, I need to play first team football and the deal needs to be right.

'I know I am ready to play in the Championship but sometimes you have to be patient.

'That said, the sooner I play regularly in the Championship, the sooner I will be able to determine if I can make the step up to the promised land of the Premier League.

'I don't want to sign a deal that simply sends me back out on loan again, I want to feel part of someone's immediate and long term plans so I can settle down. It is hard living out of a suitcase and if I settle down, my football will get even better.'


MacDonald is enjoying his third loan spell at Yeovil and refused to rule out a permanent move to Huish Park.

'I have really enjoyed my time at Yeovil and the manager has just encouraged me to go out there and express myself.

At the same time, I have become a more disciplined player having now settled in a central midfield role and understanding my defensive duties.'


The 21-year-old has scored five goals in total since first joining the Glovers in 2009 and is regarded as an integral part of Terry Skiverton's midfield.
