Painter Looking To Extend Loan Stay

Painter Looking To Extend Loan Stay

Birmingham City left-back Marcos Painter says that his loan spell at Swansea could be extended until the end of the season.

His current 1 month loan ends after Saturday's home game against Carlisle.

An injury has meant that his stay with the Swans has been put in doubt, and he has spent the last few weeks at Birmingham, having treatment on his ankle injury.

This has limited the 20 year-old to just 2 games for Swansea, including an impressive home debut against Bristol City.

Painter said he's keen to stay: 'The message I got before I was injured was that my loan would be extended,'

'I think the manager down there and (Blues boss) Steve Bruce (inset) were talking about that last week, although I'm not sure exactly because I haven't been in Swansea.

'But I'm definitely keen to stay longer.

'I really enjoyed the two games I had before the injury and I would love to play some more.

'I think there's a possibility that it might be a loan until the end of the season and I'd definitely consider that.

'I'm enjoying playing and I don't think I'm going to get a look-in at Birmingham right now because the team is winning.

'I'm a Swansea player at the moment anyway, and I'm hoping for the chance to help get them back into the play-off places.'


He's also not giving up hope of featuring in Saturday's game and added: 'I'm doing a bit more work on my ankle today, striking a few balls and seeing how it goes,'

'I've then got to get in touch with the manager and hopefully it will be to tell him that I'm fit and I'm coming back.'


Tommy Williams is also close to returning and he could make the bench against Carlisle.

This is good news, he played v.well against Bristol City and this could mean Williams could move up in defence, doubt Jackett will do that though.

It will be good to keep him until end of season. Williams on left of midfield can put in some good centres as he showed before his injury. Robinson keeps coming into the centre too much. The formation has to keep it's shape.
