Painter Expects To Leave Swansea City

Painter Expects To Leave Swansea City

Marcos Painter says he's probably played his last game for Swansea City as he doesn't expect to be offered a new deal at the Liberty Stadium.

The former Birmingham City left back is currently on loan at League One side Brighton and Hove Albion and he says he hasn't heard from the Swans during his time there.

The Board have shelved all contract talks until the end of the season but Painter thinks it's highly unlikely he'll play for the Swans again:

'Being honest, I think if a new contract was going to be offered, they would have offered it by now,'

'I haven't heard anything from Swansea since I came to Brighton, which I find a bit tough to take after what I did with the club and what we achieved there.

'I am not one to sulk, but it is a bit disappointing.'

'I have only played six times for Swansea since coming back from a serious injury,'

'I think any player would struggle to prove himself in six games after so long out. It would be difficult for anyone to be given six games under a new manager.

'But that's the just the way football is sometimes and I just have to get on with it.

'I have always said that I would like to stay at Swansea, and if they came and spoke to me now I would definitely listen.

'But being realistic, I don't think anything is going to happen because they would have come to me by now.'

"Don't think Marcus is the same player we had before his cruciate injury, watched Brighton the other day on sky and although he did well, he is definitely behind Bessone and Tate in the pecking order because of his lack of speed and ability to play a wing back role."
