Jenkins: Trundle's Going Nowhere

Jenkins: Trundle's Going Nowhere

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins insists Lee Trundle is going nowhere after rejecting three bids for the striker.

There were doubts over his future this week as Championship club Bristol City were looking to bring him to Ashton Gate.

Jenkins however said they have rejected bids and will continue to do so.

He told the Evening Post:

'I can't comment on what they (Bristol City) intend to do, but the situation is the same. They have put in bids before and they have been refused, and it is the same now,'

'We have spoken to Bristol City but that is the end of it.

'Lee Trundle is an important part of Roberto Martinez's squad and there's no reason why we would want to see him move to another club.

'His influence on and off the field has been very important to the club.

'He has scored a lot of goals since moving here and our viewpoint is still the same - we don't intend selling any player who Roberto Martinez feels is an integral part of his squad.

'There will always be speculation about players, but we want our best players playing for Swansea City and helping the club get into the Championship.'


Your Views

What we have to remember is that every player has their price! If we were offered the right sort of money then it would make sense to sell him as he is now 31 and if we are looking to compete in the Championship you have to look at how competitive he can be. Don't get me wrong i am a fan of magic daps but if we were offered a good amount of cash then i would have to say consider it and use it to bring the next generation magic daps through!

Why should we be mugged out of money as hes 31?? The guy is a legend down here and has scored 20+ goals every season since hes been here..

oh, and if we were gonna be given x amount of cash, where would we spend it?? clubs know we have it and would instantly try and bump up proces a la duffy and hull.. whats the point?? keep him, see how he goes till december.. then think again.

Every player has their price and although I wouldn't want to see him leave, I think £700-800,000 for a striker approaching 31 is a good offer, if we were to receive one that high that is.

He's still a 3rd Division striker playing at the highest level in his career so far, plus he's not going to improve now at this stage.

Just like we thought. Although if Bristol City bid high enough I wouldn't completely rule out a move. I think they'd need to offer around £800k though.

Bristol have allready offered £800k and had it turned down. They would have to offer about £1m before the club would consider accepting a bid imo!
