'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jenkins: 'This Is A Very Sad Day'

Chairman Huw Jenkins says it's a very sad for the club to see Lee Trundle leave to join Bristol City.

The striker will complete the move on Monday as the Swans will pocket a minimum 1m to be paid in installments over 12 months.

Of course, Jenkins was sad to see the scouser leave, he told the Evening Post:

''We all hoped Lee Trundle would finish his playing career with us, and from my point of view this is a very sad day,''

''We would have done anything we could to try to keep him, but we cannot give Lee Championship football next season and we've got to accept that.

''We talked through the possibility of paying Lee more money to stay, but when a player expresses a desire to leave, especially someone like Lee who has done so much for us, it's difficult to stand in his way.


The club tried their absolute best to try and convince him to stay, even offering a bigger wage, but Championship football as just too good to turn down for Lee.

He's 31 in October and he obviously wants to prove himself at a higher level. And while we have an excellent chance to finally gain promotion next season, we are still yet to reach the second tier in the Football League to offer players like Trundle experience at a higher level.

The pressure is on Martinez and the squad next season to deliver, and finally get us into the Championship for the third attempt.

Failure again could mean that we'll lose other top players who seek new tougher challenges in the league above.
