Campbell: I want to stay

Published Add your comment

Bristol Rovers captain Stuart Campbell has expressed his desire to remain with the club despite having yet to be offered a new deal at the Memorial Stadium.

The midfielder, who will be out of contract in the summer, was the subject of a loan bid from Swindon but the club spurned the offer in order to keep him.

"I'm out of contract in the summer and as yet haven't been offered anything, so I'm just waiting to see what happens," Campbell told the Bristol Evening Post.

"I'd heard Swindon expressed an interest in me. I spoke to (Rovers boss) Paul Trollope about it and he reassured me about my future here because it is quite unsettling to be only eight games away from the end of the season and have nothing sorted out.

"There have been no negotiations yet but hopefully the club will talk to me at some stage. I have been here for quite a few years now and I would like to stay."

Trollope added: "We had one or two enquiries for people before the deadline, but I'm not going to speak about individuals. We didn't want anyone to leave the club on loan and go anywhere else and we're pleased to have kept the squad together."
