No Joy Yet On Robbo’s Contract

Both player and club have expressed their desire to get to a situation where both are happy but it does appear from what we are being told that it may not be as close as anybody would like.

Robinson is the only player who seems to have his situation up in the air and Roberto admits that his agent is probably talking to other clubs as he bids to secure the best deal possible for his player.

Speaking to the Evening Post, the Swansea manager said "Swansea City have made it quite clear that we want Andy to stay and Andy has also made it clear that he wants to stay.

"I'm sure his agent is talking to other clubs, but I would like to think that Andy isn't.

"No club knows Andy like we do and he doesn't know any club the way he knows us.

"He has a huge new challenge ahead of him in the Championship and I know exactly what he needs next season to make sure he closes in on his dream of playing Premier League football.

"But it's his decision. We will never try to sign players who are not committed to the club and he must sign for the right reasons."

"I will be delighted to see someone who came here when we were in League Two go on to be a very important player at Championship level," the Spaniard added.

"Andy's best years are still ahead of him and I'm hopeful he'll spend them with us.

"Negotiations can take longer than you would hope, but Andy has to be happy and so do we. Hopefully, it will all be sorted before the end of May."
