Rodgers Admits Cotterill's Future Is 'Elsewhere'

Rodgers Admits Cotterill's Future Is 'Elsewhere'

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers was asked about David Cotterill's future and admitted that it is probably going to be 'elsewhere'.

The welsh international midfielder joined the club for a then record £600,000 fee in January 2010, and has made 35 appearances for the Swans since then, scoring 5 goals.

The 23 year-old featured in Brendan Rodgers' plans early on last season, but after two penalty misses which seemed to affect his confidence, he fell out of the first team and struggled to get games.

A poor performance at Leicester City was his final appearance for the Swans, before being loaned out to Portsmouth. He started off well at Fratton Park, but he failed to find consistent form - which has been a big problem for him throughout his career, and was the reason why Sheffield United sold him to us.

Cotterill started in today's friendly win at Port Talbot, but he didn't really do anything of worthy note. After the game, Rodgers spoke to Swansea Sound and he simply said that his future is most likely 'elsewhere' if he can find another club.

It's a shame really as Cotterill has shown glimpses of quality and potential for the Swans, but he's never been able to play consistently well for any length of time.
