A few days ago, we relayed quotes from Middlesbrough loanee Martin Braithwaite and his desire to stay at Bordeaux, the club he’s currently loaned at.
Since joining the French side in January, the Denmark international has yet to find the back of the net, but that isn’t something that’s worrying him, knowing that moment will come, as it always has done.
Speaking to SFR Sport in France, relayed by Girondins33, Braithwaite was also asked about his future, and his reply did nothing to dispel what he’d told GOLD Radio previously.
He said: “I like Bordeaux. That’s for sure. It’s a nice project. The club is big and can improve some more. It’s up to us to do interesting things and climb back up the table.
“Of course you could see me with the Bordeaux shirt next year. I feel very good here. After that, it’s up to those in charge to take that decision. It’s up to the club to see if they still want me, if they like what I’m doing”.
Bordeaux included an option to buy the player at any time during January and the end of the season, but there has been little indication as to what they plan on doing with the forward.
He’s made his desire very clear, and with Tony Pulis seemingly not interested in having the 26-year-old in his squad, perhaps a move might be best for everyone involved.
First, though, he’ll need to score a goal, or get an assist. Just, something.
