'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Swansea City's Cotterill Eager To Leave

The Swans midfielder is set to leave next week when the loan transfer window for clubs outside the Premier League opens.

Cotterill 23, who joined the Swans for 600,000 from Sheffield United, has found first team opportunities rare under manager Brendan Rodgers.

When the loan transfer window opens in five days for clubs outside of the Premier League, Cotterill is looking to get out of Swansea and get some games:

"As soon as the loan window opens, I'll be looking to get out and play a few games,' said Cotterill.

'It's really frustrating at the moment that I'm not playing. I'm not even travelling with the team so it's important I go somewhere else to give me the best chance of getting in the Welsh squad.

'My future's not looking very bright at Swansea, that's no secret because the gaffer's put it out in the press.

'It's been very difficult because I thought I'd come back this season with a clean slate. I kept my head down and worked hard, but obviously that wasn't enough because I didn't even get to travel for the tour of Austria.'


David Cotterill was hoping to spend a good few years at the Liberty Stadium, but concedes that his time may be up in South Wales:

'I came back and worked my socks off in pre-season, but wasn't really given the chance to do anything,' added Cotterill.

'It's frustrating because I do really like the club. When I left Sheffield United I wanted to settle at a club for a good few years, but that's not going to be the case.

'They're a great bunch of lads here and they play great football. That's something I'm used to and I'd love to be a part of it.

'The manager's been up front with me. It's just disappointing because I want to play for someone as good as him.'


Wales manager Gary Speed revealed to Cotterill that first team football is imperative for his International career:

'I've spoken to Gary Speed and he said if I can get myself playing I've got a really good chance of playing for Wales because they are short down the right hand side,' he added.
