Former Swansea City striker Lee Trundle is on his way to the Welsh Premier League, according to the BBC. Reports from BBC Sport Wales suggest that Trundle is to sign for Neath on a three year contract. Neath have yet to confirm the deal. Yeovil Town had been chasing his signature along with a number of other League One clubs, but it looks as though they will be disappointed.
The claims are also made by the Wales Online media website and state that Neath's deal will make him the highest paid player in the Welsh Premier League, citing a salary of £2,500 per week. Unconfirmed rumours are that Trundle has been training with Tranmere Rovers this week, but whether they've actually been in the running for his signature, or whether he's merely chosen them as being close to his Liverpool roots is another matter.
Assuming the reports of a three year deal are true, that sort of length of contract is above and beyond anything Yeovil Town would offer for the 33 year old. At that age, a lengthy contract and a large wage is going to be difficult to turn down. He made his career move into the Football League via Welsh side Rhyl, who until this summer were in the same division as Neath, and so will be well aware of the standard of football.
