'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wotte plans for next season

Saints boss Mark Wotte is playing the waiting game as he gets his squad sorted for League One.

Some players have drawn attention from other clubs, while others are out of contract, and the Dutchman has been in talks with his players to decide their future.

'I've spoken to players like Marek Saganowski, Grzegorz Rasiak and Nathan Dyer about what they should expect in pre-season,' he told the official website.

'If they cannot find a club that are willing to pay the right amount of money for them then they should report back on the 15th June with everybody else.

'Nathan has said that he hopes to stay with Swansea because he wants to play Championship football, but we will only allow that if Swansea make the right offer for him, otherwise he is due back with us.

Rasiak has settled in well at Vicaridge Road, and the Polish striker has been scoring consistently for Brendan Rodgers. Wotte is keen to get the best deal for the 30-year-old.

'Grzegorz has spoken with Watford and they have made an offer to him to extend his loan but there are some financial issues with that.

'I'm also currently talking to agents at the moment regarding the situation with some of our younger players to see if some contracts can be extended.'

I can imagine Rasiak staying at Watford as he has settled in very well, and Brendan Rodgers has spoken highly of him. Dyer started well at Swansea, but I understand that a lot of Swans fans don't rate him too much. And Saga has stated how he doesn't want to play League One football (fair enough) so I can see those three players leaving St. Mary's this summer.

Yeah, I agree. I think all players will leave, and next season our team will be more inexperienced, but in League 1, on -10! Next season is going to be very very hard. I think Wotte needs to get some serious PLANNING in!

good luck for next season lads , its been a hard season for you , hope things turn for the better .
Kimbo
Think we need to get rid of them all. Fresh start with the youngsters and a few 'old heads'. -10 gives us something to aim for, think we will do fine.
SaintIan
Yeah well put SaintIan. A fresh start would be nice, Wotte has said we need a typical 'English' striker and centre back to do well in League 1, and I think he's right. We can't afford to get bullied in this league and the recruitment of some experienced English players would be nice.
abesaint
Who do you suggest as our striker? I firmly believe that young Paterson will step up to the mark next season, with McLaggon and Holmes on the wings then someone like Holt from Shrewsbury or Bishop from Bury maybe the answer? McG if he stays will play in that attacking midfield position - I see goals, goals and more goals!
SaintIan
Yeah I'd love DMG to stay as he has proved to be good in the hole. Paterson has shown promise, and I'd like to see him play at this level. Holt is a great shout as he is proven in this league, and I'd love to get him in. That's certainly a way to look at it. Goals Goals Goals!
