Akinfenwa: 'I Want To Stay'

Akinfenwa: 'I Want To Stay'

Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa says he want to stay with Swansea after being offered a new contract.

The big frontman was one of eight players out of contract in June, and along with Austin, Monk, Iriekpen, Watt and O'Leary, he's in talks over signing a new deal.

Akinfenwa told Sky Sports:

'There is a new deal on the table which I'm grateful for, and I believe the negotiations are going on this week,'

'I hope that something can be worked out as I've always wanted to stay here as it's a fantastic club with real potential.

'My agent is sitting down with the chairman so I'm sure both parties can reach agreement which means I can stay at Swansea. I'm not interested in going anywhere else.'


Akinfenwa hasn't been able to take part in the last 3 months of the season because of injury as the Swans narrowly missed out on the play-offs.

Despite failing to reach the top 6, he said:

'It's just one of those things in football, and most of the lads are strong enough to put it behind them,'

'The mood isn't as bad as you may necessarily think.

'People are looking forward to next season where we can concentrate on a first full season under Roberto Martinez, and hopefully make it to the Championship.'

He has issued this statement so that the fans know he wants to stay. If he is not happy with the new contact ( same terms as last year?), then he will walk. So if he goes then he is telling us that it is not his fault. Still hasn't recovered from his injury so what club is going to sign him.

he says - There is a new deal on the table which I'm grateful for, sounds like a but should come in after that. he doesn't exactly say that he hopes to sign soon or anything.

I hope he does stay, I like him and always seems to try hard, don't think he has the legs for 90 mins though.
