Izzy Iriekpen has sensationally hit out over the new deals offered at the club to the out of contract players. Iriekpen has sighted the contract length not the basic wage as a stumbling block.

Izzy has been outspoken at the club this year after demanding a transfer request and also his off the pitch problems have led to him being left out of the squad.

Swans Defender Iriekpen was interviewed by the south wales evening post on the Lack of negotiations at the club:

” ‘It is not about the money..It is the length of contract and the fact there has been no negotiation…To say we should just sign what is put in front of us is an insult…I feel I have to say something because of what is coming out of the club..With the way it is at the moment it doesn’t look good for me staying.’



Iriekpen in recent months has been linked to Leeds United and he has confirmed that his agent had been in touch with the club.

It therefore seems that Iriekpen’s time at the club has come to an end.

I must agree with the club over their stance with these players; they have had problems this season with either disciplinary problems, injury’s and also under-achieving on the field of play.

Giving them a long term deal when there are concerns over them could send out the wrong signals.
