A club statement today confirms that Andy Robinson has rejected to sign a new contract with Swansea City.
The statement reads in full:
'Swansea City has made Andy Robinson an exceptional offer to commit his future to the Club, and feel we have reached the point where this has to be our final offer. We feel the deal being offered fully reflects Andy's career development since he joined us in August 2003. However, Andy feels that we are still some way short of matching both his playing and financial aspirations over the next few years. Obviously, the Club is disappointed with this stance. Swansea City do not want to sell Andy Robinson, and we are more than willing for Andy to stay with the Club and to see out the final year of his current contract - even if this results in Andy walking away as a free agent next summer.
To prove the Club's commitment to keeping Andy, we have in the past few weeks rejected offers from Southend United and Cardiff City of £200,000 and £300,000 respectively. Our aim this season is to achieve automatic promotion to The Championship and we feel that Andy has a big part to play in us realising that ambition'.
Despite the second half of that statement saying that the club are willing to keep him here and risk seeing him go on a free summer, I think it's worth selling him now for anything over £350,000.
Most of the fans have now lost respect for Andy and I think he could even put in a transfer request if the club persist on rejecting bids that could see Robbo joining a Championship club with his wages doubled or even trebled.
He's clearly shown that he wants a much bigger wage packet than we're willing to offer as well as a move up to the Championship and with 2 or 3 clubs showing an interest, he's probably keen on a move before the start of the season.
There are more rumours today linking him with £400,000 move to Southend, yesterday it was Stoke!
