Tudur Jones future unsure - Swans

Owain Tudur Jones
Tudur Jones has seen Joe Allen climb above him in the Swans pecking order

Manager Roberto Martinez says he does not know whether Owain Tudur Jones will be with Swansea next season.

"I'm sure there are teams interested in Owain, we're speaking to his agent and want him to stay but what the player wants to do will be key," he said.

The three-cap Wales midfielder, 24, is still under contract at the Swans.

But a lack of first-team opportunities has frustrated the north Walian who was on loan at Swindon last season and has been linked with a permanent move.

"Owain's with the Wales squad at the moment so his focus is there," Martinez told BBC Sport Wales.


Teenager Joe Allen jumped ahead of Tudur Jones in the Liberty Stadium midfield pecking order last season.

Tudur Jones, who made his international bow against Luxembourg in March 2008, signed for Swansea from Welsh Premier side Bangor City in 2005.

But his Swansea career has been beset by serious knee injuries and he suffered almost two seasons on the sidelines.

The former Chelsea triallist, who has visited renowned American surgeon Dr Richard Steadman to help his ongoing knee problems, feels he needs regular first-team football to improve his international ambitions.
