Jamie Paterson is still an unresolved issue for Swansea City
Wednesday, 26th Jan 2022 12:00 by Keith Haynes

It seems Jamie Paterson’s immediate Swansea City career remains in the balance as the transfer window comes to an end on Monday night. With nothing coming out of the club that says there is anything positive about the situation Russell Martin again faced the press to answer questions on his disillusioned player.

Yesterday’s game was the third in a row that Jamie Paterson has missed and it seems now after talks that the swans are sitting back and waiting for the transfer window to run its course on Jamie’s future. Russell Martin has been open and honest about the situation “ Pato ? I don’t know, we will know next Monday night, if he is still with us, brilliant, if he’s not it means someone has met the evaluation the owners have put on the player, and I'm pretty sure if that happens we will be able to replace him anyway, or maybe in other areas. We miss him, I really wish he was here, but it is what it is, and as I’ve said to you before it’s how he feels, mentally, rightly or wrongly, and he is not in the right position to play”

Martin has already sounded very confident when asked about players coming in to the club, however he admits this is not an enjoyable time for him. “The window ? It’s madness really. Everyone enjoys the excitement of a deal in the last two or three days. So things change very quickly, I don’t enjoy the last two or three days. We’ve done really good business already, and no matter what happens we will come out of the transfer window stronger than we were at the start of it which is the most important thing”

Jamie Paterson, here’s hoping someone is listening

Nothing is certain it seems and nothing can be truly predicted with the free radical that are people at this time of the year. Swansea City have their targets, some business has worked and other inquiries and talks haven’t, thats how it goes, it’s not a perfect science. Despite many people turning to a variety of sources for up to date information we can only report what we have in the way that we do. We are clear there will be players in before the transfer window ends, and that positivity will always remain.

If Jamie Paterson stays then as Martin says “ Brilliant, beautiful, fantastic” And we probably would add to that “Super, smashing, great” The real issue for Jamie now though is has he burned his bridges with the Swansea support ? Anyone fancy a stab at that one ?

It could be we should close with these quotes attributed to Paterson only last August when he joined the swans.

“I had a long-term injury last season and I was a bit down in the dumps. I went to Middlesbrough and got injured on the first day, so that didn't help. I just look at where I was in the summer, the position I was in. I was at home and not knowing where I was going to be. Being injured and out of contract is not a nice place to be – especially when you have been somewhere for five years as I had been at Bristol. I ended up at home with no club and no job. It was a strange feeling. I got thrown a lifeline from the gaffer here. I know Luke [Williams] from Bristol City, but, to be honest with you, I didn't know where I was going to end up in the summer”

As we say ‘There's no more free radical as folk’
