The two join a number of clubs who have shown an interest in the Llanelli-born youngster including Sunderland, Southampton, First Division Grimsby, Oxford and FA Cup semi-finalists Wycombe. Roberts is currently on holiday mulling over his future and before going away he told the Post he was unhappy things could not be sorted out regarding his future with Swansea.

“I am upset that no contract has been agreed with the Swans,” said Roberts, who is 21 next month.

“I have got a lot of thinking to do and as soon as I come back from holiday I will have to make a decision. “I can’t hold on too long because I have to plan for the future.”

Roberts was probably Swansea’s best player during the disastrous campaign in Division Two last season. His contract is up at the end of this month and he is able to move on a free transfer under the Bosman ruling.

However, if Roberts did decide to leave Swansea could seek compensation under transfer regulations as the player is under 24. Contract talks have been ongoing with Roberts since around Christmas and the youngster has always said that he does not want to leave the club he loves.

But the Welsh Under-21 international may now think there is no other option other than to move on if a deal cannot be drawn up.

“I have to decide,” said Roberts.

“If I do make the choice to leave then it will be a massive wrench to leave the club. “I love it at Swansea especially the fans, but I have got to start thinking about my career
