£500k Asking Price For Robinson

£500k Asking Price For Robinson

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is demanding £500,000 for Andy Robinson after rejecting Cardiff's £300,000 bid, the News of the World report today.

The Sunday paper are reporting that the 26 year-old is currently on £1,500 with the Swans, and knows that a move to a Championship club could see his wage treble or more.

Kenny Jackett has revealed that 'Robbo' may leave before the season' opening game next Saturday providing the right offer comes in.

The Swans boss insists though that they are trying their best to keep Andy at the club, he said: ''We're working very hard to agree a new contract with Andy.

''I definately don't want to lose him. There's no way we want to sell him.

''But if someone comes in with a massive offer then he could go. That applies to any player.''

I wouldn't say Andy's demands are excessive.

''There are other things to talk about such as the standard of football. It's just not down to pound notes.''


He has refused to sign a 3-year deal because he is unhappy with the terms and he believes he should be amongst the highest earners at the club, along with star striker Lee Trundle.

Robinson has lost of the respect of a lot of fans after trying to get a better deal with the Swans but he has insisted it's not all money.

He said: ''I love Swansea but I've got the chance to play Championship football.

''This is about ambition - it's not all about finances. I might not get this chance again.

''It's a short career and I didn't come into the game until I was 22.

''If I move to the Championship and do well there then I could be playing in the Premiership, and that would be a dream to me.

''I only want what's best for me. When I'm 35 I don't want to look back and think I made the wrong decision.

''Whatever the job, everyone wants to move up to a higher position, better themselves and get a pay rise. I think I have the right to want those things.

''You've got to look after yourself. The chairman has a business to run but I've got a family to provide for.''

The club is set to announce a statement tomorrow to explain the situation.

He says he's not being greedy but he starts talking about financial issues again near the end! £400,000 at least and that'll be good business. I think it's very unlikely now that'll he sign a new contract with us.

If we have £400,000 then that will be a good deal from a business point of view. If we sign Bolland and have OTJ & Way fit - then we will have quite a selection of midfielders to choose from.
