Paul Anderson has given Roberto Martinez a welcome insight into where his future could lie over the next 12 months as he declares he would love to extend his stay at the Liberty Stadium into next season.
Injured since the 29th January the winger made his welcome return to action in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw against second placed Carlisle United. A note of caution has been laid out by the Liverpool youngster that he has felt his future is up in the air.
There are no concrete plans for next season but Martinez and Swansea fans will be hoping one of the candidates for the player of the season is given the all clear by Rafa Benitez to extend his loan agreement with the Liberty Stadium club.
Conversations with Liverpool’s reserve team boss Gary Ablett have taken place and the former Everton player believes that the pacy winger could break into the Liverpool first team. Despite the positive comments raised by Ablett Anderson does not believe that at this moment in his development he is ready to mount that challenge.
With all this talk of the future ahead Anderson has remained focused on the task at hand. Promotion could be secured at Gillingham tomorrow afternoon and the a leauge one title medal is firmly on the 19 year old’s mind.
Anderson Spoke To The SWEP:
|‘Y’I honestly don’t know at the moment what the future holds for me.I assume at the end of the season I’ll go back to Liverpool, sit down with them, my agent and my dad and have a chat about what they think I’ve done this season.|
‘I haven’t spoken with Liverpool that much while I’ve been here so I’ll go back and see what they want from me.I think they have been at most of my games and hopefully they are pleased with what they’ve seen.’
‘I’ve had a bit of feedback from Gary Ablett, the reserve-team manager, who says I’ve done well and says there’s no reason why I can’t go back and push for a first-team place.But personally I can’t see myself breaking into the Liverpool first team next season.’
I’m still young, I’ve still got a lot to learn and I would think a six-month loan up until Christmas will be what I’m looking for.’
It’s great to be back ,I had a couple of weeks getting treatment at Liverpool and it was nice to see my girlfriend and my mates from the reserves.
‘But I soon started to miss Swansea. I missed being around the lads and enjoying being top of the league.Hopefully we can clinch promotion this weekend, but then we really want the title.My eyes are on that medal at the moment, and once that’s achieved I’ll see what’s happening next year.’
Swansea City could be promoted this evening should Swindon Town win over third placed Doncaster Rovers.Failing that a win over relegation threatened Gillingham on Saturday would seal promotion.
