DRFC Ryan hoping Stock will stay

DRFC Ryan hoping Stock will stay

Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan is hopeful that club captain Brian Stock will remain a Rovers player past the end of this season.

Stock is out of contract in the summer and earlier in the season, he stated that his career looked to be away from Rovers after the player failed to agree a new deal at the Keepmoat.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Post in October, Stock said, 'I have not signed a new contract and it looks like I will have to find a new club. I wanted to stay but myself, my agent, the club - we cannot agree and it looks very unlikely that we will agree.
'Negotiations have broken down and that's not through my lack of wanting to stay,' he said. 'I was prepared to commit to the club but now I am keeping my options open. I have a family to look after and if it means me having to leave to get a contract, I will have to do that.'

Stock has been linked with a number of clubs during the past twelve months including Swansea, Southampton, Leeds United and one of his former clubs Bournemouth.

Ryan however is hopeful that the influential midfielder will sign a new deal to keep him at the Keepmoat and hopes that he will see out the remainder of his career in Rovers colours.

Speaking on Radio Sheffield`s Football Heaven, Ryan said he was hopeful Stock would stay, when he said, "I sincerely hope so, Brian has been a great servant to the club, he`s club captain and I`d like to see him end his career with us if possible."

Stock joined Rovers initially on loan in September 2006 before signing on a full time basis in January 2007 from Preston North End.

The 28 year old who celebrates his 29th birthday on Christmas eve as gone on to make over 160 appearances for the club but a niggling back injury as forced him to miss long periods since the clubs promotion to the Championship.

Stock scored his first goal of the season in Rovers last game against Middlesbrough when he scored an injury time winner.

Stock will be free to speak to any prospective new clubs in January when the transfer window reopens and he could sign a pre contractual agreement with another club if no new contract agreement can be agreed at Rovers.

If no new deal can be agreed, Rovers might decide to cash in on the Welsh international midfielder in January, rather than allow him to leave on a free at the end of the season.

All the main Rovers players out of contract in the summer have already signed new deals. I can't see Stock signing one and think he will be gone in January.

I think he would have signed a new deal by now if he was going to stay.
