Paul Smith Wants To Stay At Swindon

Injured Midfielder Paul Smith, who was influencial in Town's resurgence a few weeks ago is ready to commit his future to Swindon.

Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser Smith said, “I’d love to stay although I don’t know what the gaffer’s plans are. The injury’s (ankle injury) ot helped because I was hoping to get in the team, do well and earn myself another year or two, we’ll have to see. Come the end of the season we’ll have a chat and hopefully I can persuade him to offer me another year.'

Smith who played the bulk of his career at Gillingham has gone as far as to say he would move to the area should his dream of a new contract with Swindon come true. “I’ve spoken to the wife and I would probably buy a place around this way for however long I stayed.'

“This is a friendly club and I’ve been made to feel welcome.”

On the injury front, Smith has started some light training and may be back before the end of the season. It was widely expected that Smith would miss the rest of this season and need an operation on his ankle.

Smith was injured against his old club Gillingham last month and had to be taken off. Since the injury Town have slipped from the dizzy heights of 16th all the way back into the relegation zone.
