Swansea City midfielder Andy Robinson has justified his decision for keeping faith in the club, rather than accepting previous offers from Championship clubs.

The former Tranmere man experienced a long spell of contract talks last year with offers and interest coming in from Championship clubs.

He finally penned a deal, rejecting those offers and he recently told the Western Mail:

“For me personally, I wanted to do it with Swansea City. It`s a club I`ve grown to love and a club I`ll support when I`ve finished playing.

“Who knows how many more years I will play for Swansea City. I`ll be more than happy, not to mention excited, to play in the Championship for Swansea City.

“I believe it`s a league I can establish myself in and a league this club deserves to be in.”

“Playing in the Championship wasn`t in my wildest dreams when I first came back into the game. But I`ve always believed in my ability to play there.

“Now we`re well on the way to getting there.

And, while I turned down a few offers to play at that level, I always knew this club was a sleeping giant that would be playing there before long.

“I always thought there would be a day when I played for Swansea City in the Championship. We`ve been trying to grasp it for the last couple of years and we deserve a chance to compete there.”



Can Andy Robinson perform at a higher level?
