Club discuss possibility of signing free agent Anthony Stewart
Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he will hold discussions with Chairman John Bowler over the Wycombe Wanderers defender Anthony Stewart. The 22-year-old has not played since rejecting a new deal at Adams Park in the summer and he has previously spent a period on trial with Crawley Town.
Stewart has been training with Crewe Alexandra recently but due to his age the League Two are rightly entitled to compensation having come through their youth set-up to sign a professional contract in 2011.
Davis will hold talks with John Bowler and the board of directors to consider the possibility of signing the promising defender if an agreement can be made between the two clubs. If this was to happen now, during the January window or next summer remains to be seen.
Steve explained: “We have had a look at Anthony and he is a promising young player. He is a powerful lad and is still young.
“He has been in the wilderness a bit after rejecting Wycombe’s offer of a new contract. I will speak with the Chairman about him because he has done well and has potential but we have enough defenders at the moment.
“That may change in January because we have Tatey (Alan Tate) up in January and we are not sure yet what Swansea want to do with him or what Al has planned himself.
“We then have a few centre-halves out of contract in the summer, so that is something we have to look at going forward. We will have to make a decision on a few of them but that is something that is always on going here.
He added: “I’ve already spoken to the chairman about the nucleus of the team for next season and discussed some of the decisions we will have to make.”
