Swindon Town remain in discussions to extend the contracts of both Nnamdi Ofoborh and Sean McGurk, revealed Head of Football Jamie Russell.

Town announced their retained list a month ago, which saw just 12 players kept from last season’s squad, plus contracts being offered to McGurk and Ofoborh.

Then-interim head coach Gavin Gunning revealed ahead of the end of the season that the club were in discussions with McGurk over extending his contract.

Speaking ahead of the final game of the season against Morecambe, Gunning said: “We spoke to him and he has got to speak to his agent now and see where he is at.

“I think that we are negotiating with Sean at the minute, so we will see [what ends up happening].”

The former Leeds United winger scored twice in his first three starts for Swindon after joining in January, although fell out of favour towards the end of the season and did not feature in five of Town’s last six games of the season, however, he did set up Charlie Austin’s opening goal on the final day.

Ofoborh spent eight weeks on trial with Swindon before being handed a deal until the end of the season prior to the Notts County match on Good Friday and would start all of the final six games of the campaign.

He was also offered the chance to stay at the County Ground after the campaign ended, having gone three years without making a senior appearance prior to joining Swindon.

However, Russell revealed that there has been no real concrete movement with either player’s extension since the retained list was announced, as they continue to speak with their agents.

He said: “We are currently speaking with the agents.

“Mark has only been in the door officially for five hours, so we will have some good time to sit down and go through the players.

“But we have spoken to both of their agents.”

Following the appointment of Mark Kennedy as head coach, both the 48-year-old and Russell spoke about looking to get work done on building the squad for next season as quickly as possible to strengthen a small group that has carried over from last season.

This saw Ollie Clarke arrive for an undisclosed fee from Mansfield Town as the first signing of the summer transfer window, the 31-year-old midfielder has won promotion from this level twice before both with the Stags and at Bristol Rovers.
