Joe Allen to stay at Swansea as retained list is imminent. Ogbeta to leave ?
Thursday, 9th May 2024 16:37 by Liam Walters

It seems Joe Allen’s immediate future will continue to be at Swansea City as an agreement in principle has been reached between the two parties.

Luke Williams has pushed for Joe to stay at the Swans on a one year contract which depends on appearances and other bonuses. The players current contract has been reduced within these new terms but details are not available through any medium.

Speaking of Joe a few weeks ago Williams said, "We are definitely going to be talking to all of the players who are out of contract and of course with Joe as well. Joe is an incredible player and an incredible player for this club. He proved for me when he came on the pitch that he's still a really good player and really capable so we're definitely going to be having discussions. But there is a discussion to be had because it's not completely straightforward."

That last sentence reveals what many knew regards Joe’s Swansea future. His injuries since being at Swansea have restricted him to nineteen appearances this season all told. He missed exactly three months between September and December. On his return Joe made the most of being injury free for nearly four months adding quality and ingenuity to the Swansea midfield. The last six games of the season were missed due to a toe injury. It’s highly likely Joe’s performances during his nigh on four months of availability have saved him from being rejected at the Swans. The season previous to the one just finished saw Joe make seventeen games, starting eleven appearances.

It is a risk, but it seems it’s one the Swans believe is worth taking.

For us from what we know this is ninety five percent done, and when we get other news on players either released or contracted we will let you know. On that we have been told that Nathanael Ogbeta is already aware he won’t be offered a new deal at the Swans and will leave as a free agent next month.
