Toddy Signs At Last

There were fears amongst the support that Todd would be another one to head for the door marked ‘exit’ with various stories doing the rounds about insulting contract offers and interested from continental clubs.
Todd was without a doubt one of the high points of last season, appearing 11 times in total and scoring his first professional goal in the 6-0 drubbing of Brentford towards the end of the season. Speaking to the official site, Todd said "It was just a case of negotiating the right deal for both parties, Ialways wanted to stay here. I’m glad it’s done, and now I can look forward to the new season without any distractions. We can be quietly confident for next season, and with the newsignings I believe that we will get somewhere."
Todd spent part of his summer at a coaching camp in America, arranged by American Swans Fan Tony Santore and his signature will be a major boost to John Hollins, already under pressure from sections of the support even before the season has started.
Still uncertain are the future’s of Andrew Mumford, Stuart Roberts and Richie Appleby. Stuart is due to open new negotiations next week although chairman Mike Lewis has admitted that the contract offer ‘is not going to be what we offered last’ whilst Mumford and Appleby are rarely talked about in contract negotiations with Appleby unlikely to figure in the manager’s plans.
