Routledge Wants Toon Pay Off!
Yesterday we reported that Wayne Routledge was crying in his beer because no club was willing to sign him. But the truth goes a lot deeper! Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers concedes his have a way to go before signing Routledge ... even though a fee has been agreed with Newcastle United. Swansea have settled on a deal which is thought to be worth close to £2 million for the Toon winger — but the transfer is far from complete. Routledge has two years to run on a lucrative St James' Park contract and is thought to be looking for a settlement from the Geordies before agreeing to leave. Brendan Rodgers: "A fee has been agreed between the clubs, but there is still a lot of work to do. "The agreement on the fee allows us to speak to the player and to try to convince him this can be a good place for him. "With the style of football we play and the environment here, I think it could be a great place for Wayne to kick on and develop. "He is in his mid-20s and he still has a lot to offer, but we have to agree personal terms first. That's the hard bit."
