‘Everyone knows’ – Swansea City hero addresses future with deal up this summer

Swansea City forward Liam Cullen has made it clear he intends to stay with the club this summer as his deal runs closer to expiry.

Swansea City academy graduate Cullen was one of the derby day heroes at the weekend as Luke Williams’ side defeated Cardiff City 2-0. It marked a third win in five Championship games for the Swans, drawing one and losing the other.

24-year-old Cullen opened the scoring on the day, guiding home Kyle Naughton’s cross to send the home crowd into raptures. Jamal Lowe would net the second in the dying embers of the tie, leaving Williams and co 15th in the Championship table and seven points clear of the bottom three.

Cullen’s goal made it six goals and four assists in 37 league games for the forward but as the end of the season nears, his future remains unresolved.

The Tenby-born forward is out of contract this summer, but there can be no doubt over the player’s stance. There is a 12-month extension option, but Cullen has his eyes on something more long-term.

As quoted by BBC Sport, he said:

“Everyone knows what I want to do.

“So hopefully we can sort something out – a few more years hopefully.

“This is home for me. I love playing for this club. I love representing the club. I love the fans and I love working with the staff and the manager, and obviously the players.

“It’s just down to my agent and the club to work something out.”

Who is this?

A deserved deal?

After scoring against arch rivals Cardiff City, there’s probably few Swansea City fans who would say Cullen shouldn’t be handed a new deal. It’s clear just how much he enjoys life with the club too.

Cullen hasn’t always been a nailed on starter and his form has dipped at times but ultimately, he’s a valuable player to have. He can operate in a number of attacking positions and a return of six goals and four assists is a respectable one this season.

The club can trigger the 12-month option in his contract to tie him down beyond this summer at least. However, coming to an agreement over a renewed deal beyond then would be a big show of faith in his talents ahead of the transfer window.

Until then though, Cullen will be looking to do all he can to prove why he’s one to hold onto for Swansea City.
