Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa says he want to stay with Swansea after being offered a new contract.
The big frontman was one of eight players out of contract in June, and along with Austin, Monk, Iriekpen, Watt and O’Leary, he’s in talks over signing a new deal.
Akinfenwa told Sky Sports:
|‘There is a new deal on the table which I’m grateful for, and I believe the negotiations are going on this week,’|
‘I hope that something can be worked out as I’ve always wanted to stay here as it’s a fantastic club with real potential.
‘My agent is sitting down with the chairman so I’m sure both parties can reach agreement which means I can stay at Swansea. I’m not interested in going anywhere else.’
Akinfenwa hasn’t been able to take part in the last 3 months of the season because of injury as the Swans narrowly missed out on the play-offs.
Despite failing to reach the top 6, he said:
|‘It’s just one of those things in football, and most of the lads are strong enough to put it behind them,’ |
‘The mood isn’t as bad as you may necessarily think.
‘People are looking forward to next season where we can concentrate on a first full season under Roberto Martinez, and hopefully make it to the Championship.’
