Rodgers Ready To Sign Long Term Contract

Rodgers Ready To Sign Long Term Contract

Swansea City have been boosted by the news that manager Brendan Rodgers says signing a new contract would be 'straightforward' for him.

The Irishman put talks of signing a new deal on hold during the Summer as he preferred to concentrate on securing his players to longer terms at the club.

Joe Allen, Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor, Nathan Dyer, Garry Monk and Alan Tate all put pen to paper on new contracts since the Summer.

With those key players committing their future at Swansea City, Rodgers says he is now ready to sit down for talks with the club regarding his future.

When asked by Wales Online whether it would be an easy decision to sign a new deal, he said:

"Yeah, I love it here. There is no reason not to.

"I would just have to sit down, look at the club and make sure the vision of the club aligns with my own and we can continue to move forward.

"The club have treated me ever so well, the supporters have been brilliant with me.

"Hopefully, they will feel I have given them something in return.

"So, it would be straightforward for me to sign another deal here.

"That will be up to the board and chairman to decide now."


Rodgers added that he's looking to help the club progress further after gettting them promoted to the Premier League:

"In the summer, when the chairman spoke with me about my side of things, my concentration was purely on getting the players sorted and organised.

"I also had personal things going on and a new contract was probably the furthest thing from my mind.

"But I`m happy at the club and, if the club decide to act, or not, then I will continue to work like I have done since I have been here and help the club to progress."

No doubt he's a great manager and he'll sign the new deal no problem. As for his "vision", that has to be for the boards backing on a dedicated training facility. I know that's one of his priorities at the moment.
