- Jamie Paterson was one of the stars of the first half of the season for Swansea
- The livewire is in a contractual stalemate with the club over an extension of its deal
- QPR has made two bids for Paterson and Huddersfield and Blackburn is excited
- The 30-year-old believes the club has not kept its promises on its terms
Swansea City striker Jamie Paterson has accused the club of broken promises as uncertainty over his future mounts.
Paterson is currently training with Swansea’s under-23s amid turmoil over his contract situation.
The 30-year-old, who came to Swansea on a free transfer in the summer, is one of the lowest paid players in Russell Martin’s squad.

The striker is not happy with the terms offered to him to stay on the Championship side
Paterson signed a one-year deal on his arrival at Swansea and was promised new terms after making a stunning impression at the club in the first half of the season.
The skilled striker scored eight goals and provided four assists in 21 Championship appearances, prompting the Welsh club to start a one-year contract extension earlier this month.
Paterson is unhappy that the club has not kept their promise to give him an improved contract as a reward for his outstanding performance for the team.
Queens Park Rangers have reportedly rejected two offers from Swansea for Paterson, while Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers are also interested in the player, but the club have declined to listen to any offers as a result.
QPR has put out two bids for Paterson, while Huddersfield and Blackburn are also interested
Former Bristol City livewire Paterson did not play for Swansea this year, the last visiting Nottingham Forest on December 11.
Manager Russell Martin has said he has a good relationship with Paterson, who has since missed all three games of the Swans’ Championship.
Second-top goalscorer Paterson’s early-season purple patch included a run of four goals in five appearances in September and October.
It remains to be seen whether the troubled attacker will be allowed to leave Swansea before the end of the transfer window.
