Robinson Hopeful Over New Contract

Robinson Hopeful Over New Contract

Andy Robinson is hoping that a new contract can be 'sorted' before the new season gets under way on August 5th.

With talks over a new deal on-going for the last few weeks, speculation has grown over his future at the club.

His current contract expires next summer and Swansea could risk losing him then for a free transfer.

The 26 year-old told the Western Mail last week that he needs to look out for his future financially and therefore he is looking for the best deal.

His plea to the club then was basically ''pay me what I'm worth'' as both the player and his agent believed he was worthy of a bigger wage at Swansea.

Championship sides Cardiff and Southend have made their interest known but Andy has expressed his love for the club and the fact that he wants to stay.

He said: 'We're a bit further on, so hopefully something can be sorted before the start of the season,'

'I've stated how much I love the club and I believe I will stay here, but I just want to make sure everything is right for me in the future.


In other news, former Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has been named as the new manager of tomorrow's opponents, Wolves.

He won't be in charge tomorrow though, as he takes over from caretaker manager Stuart Gray on Monday.

Kenny Jackett couldn't take any positives out of Tuesday's 3-3 draw at Carmarthen and will be hoping for a vast improvement when Wolves arrive at the Liberty Stadium.

We need to get him pinned down now. If he starts the season on-fire, hes bound to alert bigger clubs as they kno his contract will be up at the end of the season. Then he wont sign at all and he'll be gone for nothing!

Robbos got to stay but if we stay down this year which we won't I think he'll move to a championship team at the end of his contract if he doesnt sign 1 for the swans, but hopfully swans will be promoted this year. we came 4th lasy year altogether. this year I think we can chalenge for the title. we have a better squad this year I think and if all us jack sing down the liberty and travel from Carlise to Brighton we can do it!
