Robinson Offered New 2-Year Deal

Robinson Offered New 2-Year Deal

Kenny Jackett is keen to keep hold of midfielder Andy Robinson and has offered him a new 2-year extension to his existing contract that expires next year.

The Swans boss said: 'I'm a firm believer in rewarding players for their efforts,''

'Andy gave everything to the club last season and was a top performer on a consistent basis.

'His performances, commitment and enthusiasm was impressive and I am keen to keep Andy at the club beyond his current contract.

'He has been offered an improved contract that will keep him at the club until June 2008 and we are hoping to finalise matters by the end of the month.''


The 26 year-old scored an impressive 18 goals in all competitions last season.

Meanwhile, there's been no news of new arrivals at the club for nearly a fortnight since the signing of Fulham midfielder Darren Pratley.

Chairman Huw Jenkins said:

'Since I've been at the club, the transfer market has never been as bad as this,'

'We would love to give our supporters some good news but at the moment the market is very slow.

'We have got quite a few things in the pipeline, but it's proving very difficult to get anything completed.

'It looks like it's going to be a couple of weeks before we get anything done.'

'We haven't done anything since then regarding Roger Johnson because it's pointless until Wycombe appoint a new manager,'

'A few clubs are in the same situation, where they don't want to do anything until the manager's position is sorted out.


Jenkins also ruled out moves for Jay Tabb and Martyn Giles.

He added: 'The word on the grapevine is that he is going to Coventry anyway,'

Disappointing news based on where you finished last season, a couple of decent signings and a top three spot will be on the cards. Are there any loan opportunities you can benefit from?
