Time To Move On

And Swansea manager John Hollins conceded that he could do nothing to stop the right-sided player from leaving.

“We made him a terrific offer. We did everything possible, but if he wants to go elsewhere, that’s his right,” said Hollins.

“We are sorry to see him go because he has given us good service and worked very hard. “I think our youth department should take a lot of credit for bringing Jason on. He owes them a lot,” he added.

A further blow for Swansea is Price’s age. He turned 24 last month and can therefore leave for nothing under transfer regulations. Price explained that he feels the time is right for a change.

“I want something new. It’s nothing to do with Swansea City they’ve always treated me well,” he said.

“I fancy a move, not just in football but in life. Nothing will make me change my mind.”

The Aberdare-product said his decision was not based on Swansea’s relegation, but a desire to play on a bigger stage. “I’m aiming for the First Division as I believe I can play at that level,” he said.

Where Price will be heading is not yet certain, with rumours linking him with a variety of clubs in recent months.

“There’s a lot of speculation flying about at the moment. There’s nothing definite lined up yet but I’m sure something will happen during the summer.”
