Striker Leon Knight says he is still clueless as to why he has been shown the exit door by manager Kenny Jackett.
Knight told the Western Mail: 'All he ever told me was that because I score, I've got more power to influence other people to play like me, which he believes is a lazy style.
'So am I basically being punished for scoring goals?'
'To be honest, I'm past caring. The situation might have been sad to start with, but now it's just getting stupid.'
'I did what Kenny asked me to do and bought a house just around the corner from the training ground,'
'I performed to the best of my ability for the team and I only missed training twice, which was through illness.
'I truthfully still have no idea why the manager wants me out.'
Knight also added that if he was asked, he would definately play for the team again.
'If Kenny Jackett asked me to play for the team again, of course I would,'
'But that's not going to happen, but then you'd think that if they really wanted to get rid of me, why don't they play me and put me in the shop window?'
'I can't mention any clubs, but I believe I'll get somewhere before the end of the month.
'At the moment, I'm just trying to keep myself as fit as possible.'
He has also blamed Swansea for his failure to impress with Championship side Barnsley.
'Barnsley was good - but it would have been better if I'd have been fit,' Knight said.
'I'd gone three-and-a-half to four weeks at Swansea without doing any ball work.
About a week-and-a-half before joining Barnsley, I had a few training sessions with the youth team players, but that wasn't enough.
'There's only so much you can do on your own in the gym and I was unfit when I went to Barnsley. I wasn't sharp but I still think I contributed something. Results did improve after I arrived along with other loan players like Grant McCann and Ronnie Wallwork.'
