SWINDON TOWN: Hollands only focused on playing
DANNY Hollands would welcome the chance to remain with Swindon Town until the end of the season after penning a 28-day extension to his current loan from Charlton.
The midfielder has scored twice in eight appearances since arriving in Wiltshire in November and signed on for another four weeks at the County Ground yesterday.
Town manager Paolo Di Canio is keen to keep the 27-year-old for the remainder of the term but does not have the funds available to commit to a longer-term deal just yet.
When asked whether he saw his future with Charlton, the former Bournemouth man said: “It’s a difficult question. I went back in pre-season, had an operation and I was in and out. I can’t really answer that. What I’m looking forward to doing is playing for Swindon and doing well for them and then once that has finishes I can’t really tell you what will happen.
“I initially asked to go out on loan because of a few reasons. Swindon were good enough to give me an opportunity to come here, my representatives spoke to Chris Powell so I’m only going by what they said, I’m just here and focused on being a Swindon Town player until the end of the season - that’s what I want to do.
“I want to help them do something very good like they did last season.
“I’ve had a good time here, results of late have been very good for the club and I’ve enjoyed being a part of it. It’s an initial 28 days that I’ve signed and then we’ll see from there. I’m looking forward to helping the club forwards and upwards and securing us where we are in the league and the moment and hopefully improve on it as well.”
Having turned himself into an integral member of the Robins’ side during his short stay in SN1, Hollands feels like he has a mission he needs to complete with Swindon and he’d be happy to commit his immediate future to Town if given the chance.
“When I last spoke to you I wasn’t sure myself. The manager said he’d like to keep me, obviously I hadn’t spoken to Charlton so I didn’t know what was going on and what they were saying and it was a case of finding out what they wanted to do.
“Thankfully they allowed me to stay and hopefully I can be part of something good here.
“I’ve started a job now and I want to try to finish it. We’re in a good position, there are lots of good teams to go to and lots of good team to come here, but I’m part of a very good squad and I’m confident we can do something good and maintain what we’ve been doing.”
