Pratley: No Bolton pre-contract

Pratley’s current deal at the Liberty Stadium is due to expire and

he says he has yet to be offered an extension following the club’s

promotion to the Premier League. Reports have claimed that Bolton

are confident of winning the race to sign Pratley, with several

clubs also rumoured to be interested. However, Pratley has yet to

make a decision on where he will be playing his football next

season and is not ruling out staying at Swansea. “I am an honest

person and if I had signed a pre-contract with a club I would say

so,” Pratley told the Western Mail. “I don’t know where the story

came from, or who has brought that out in the press, and whether it

was done to try and distract us in the final. “I also saw I was

linked with Wigan, Newcastle, and West Ham among others, so I have

signed for five clubs already! “I will sit down with my family and

decide from there. I will go on holiday and decide about my future.

“Everyone says about me signing a contract here, but there is no

contract on the table. “I don’t expect anything in football. I

don’t expect the chairman to give me anything, you have to earn it.

But I do believe I have earned it.”
