Van Der Gun's Swansea Future Uncertain

Van Der Gun's Swansea Future Uncertain

Cedric Van Der Gun admits that he could leave Swansea City on a free transfer if he's not in Brendan Rodgers' plans for next season.

The Dutch midfielder initially signed a one-year contract last year, but he made enough appearances last season to trigger a 12-month extension.

Despite being under contract, Van Der Gun says he can still leave on a free as those were the terms agreed in the contract with chairman Huw Jenkins.

The 31 year-old showed potential last season, but only in patches and he never had a decent spell in the first team under former boss Paulo Sousa.

Van Der Gun says he's happy to stay, but he could leave the Liberty Stadium depending on the outcome of his talks with the new manager.

'I enjoyed last year under Paulo (Sousa) but now I need to have a talk with the new manager,'

'As things stand I have another year on my contract but I can go on a free — that is what I agreed with the chairman.

'Now I have to wait and see what's happening.

'The last manager has gone and now we have a new one. I hope he likes me — I want to play and do my best and then we will have a talk to see what's going to happen.

'I am not looking to leave, but the manager from when I had the contract is gone.

'I don't know what the new manager thinks about me and I don't know what the club think about me.'


It seems obvious that Van Der Gun is very keen to know where he stands with the new manager, and if Rodgers doesn't see him as a regular first team player, he could well decide to move and look for another club.

The media are going a bit over the top with this one I think. Suggesting he could leave but show no attention to the fact that he actually wants to stay. It sounds like he just wants to be assured that he's in the manager's plans, he doesn't want to be sitting on the bench all season. Hopefully Rodgers will potential and get the best out of him. If he can, he can be a regular for us in 2010/2011
