Swansea City Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has hinted that he maybe forced to leave the club after contract negotiations have stalled.
Bayo is one of 4 out of contract players left to sign their contract extensions. There has been huge criticisms towards the club of the offers given to Iriekpen, Bayo, Monk and O Leary.
Iriekpen has blasted the club over the 1 year deals offered and has called it an 'Insult.'
Swansea City Striker Akinfenwa spoke to the Evening post on the contract difficulties :
|''What will be will be, though negotiations with the club representatives haven't gone the way I would have wanted...maybe 'disrespectful' is too strong a word to use, but I don't feel appreciated in what has gone on, and for my own sake I have to be at a club that I know values me and will put faith in me to perform.|
My heart has always been with the club, but things have soured recently so I will be deciding over the weekend whether my future is here...at the moment I really don't know, which is a shame because for a long time I wouldn't even have contemplated playing my football elsewhere.'
|''If you are putting me on the spot, I would say that some of them might stay and some of them might go.|
I suppose that just represents the way football is these days - everybody has got to make their decisions the way they see fit.
Every day we are trying to get conclusions because Roberto (Martinez) wants to push ahead and make decisions,"
"It's an unfortunate situation and one we need resolved as quickly as possible. But at present the agents are quite naturally exercising their right to take their time to see if they can find a better deal.
Roberto and I have both stated that we feel we have made fair offers considering that we weren't promoted last season and the position we're in,"
It's important now that we stick with that stance."'
