Doubt over Anderson's Swans move

Winger Paul Anderson will be playing in the Championship next season, but it may not be with Swansea City.

The Swans young player of the year, 19, has been told by parent club Liverpool to prove he can step up a level from League One.

"I know I'm going back on loan, but haven't got a clue for what team," he told the Melton Times.

"I know there are quite a lot of clubs interested, but I'll just have to wait and see what happens."

Anderson scored 10 goals in 41 league and cup appearances for the Swans as they secured promotion to the Championship lifting the League One title.

And manager Roberto Martinez is keen to keep hold of the pacy youngster.

But Anderson said: "I would like to stay at Liverpool and give it a shot next season, but they want me to do a year in the Championship and see if I can step up to the next level.

"Playing my first year with a team that has been so successful has been really enjoyable although I understand it probably won't be the same next year.

"I didn't know much about Swansea before I went, but they are a massive club.

"They play great football and I think they will do well in the Championship.

"I don't know whether I will end up back there on loan, but I know for a fact they won't be relegated."
