Press conference with Krupesh Shah Jr
: Thank you for taking the time out to sit with us today. There have been a lot of rumours lately that you’re unhappy at the club and the club rejected three different offers for you at the end of the transfer window.

: No don’t get me wrong I am loving my time at this club and I am only 18, I have a long future ahead of me. We have had an amazing start to the season and my father…sorry I mean the gaffer has made me a promise that we will get promoted by the end of the season. With regard to the transfer offers it is true. Fulham submitted two offers and West Ham submitted one. The chairman here did come to me and let me know how much was offered and whether I really wanted to leave but I figured that right now this is where I need to be. I believe in the boss here and really do see us climbing the Football League on to better things.
: You only have two years left on your contract. If things go to plan and you get back to back promotions, you will be about to start life in the Championship by the time your contract finishes. Will you sign an extension at that point or will you not hang around?
: Well I can’t say what things might be like at that point but if the club can hit the Championship by the time my contract comes to an end, I think right now I would definitely sign because not only has the club achieved back to back promotions but I really believe that we would be able to do it one more time and get in to the Premier League. That’s where I want to be and with the current boss sticking with us, I really see us getting there. If we don’t there is no doubt I will hand in a transfer request or leave on a free transfer. I can’t let my career and potential England career take such a hit just to stick with a club that isn’t going anywhere.
: Wow strong words there about your future. Well we here would love to see you stick with the club and help get them in to the Premier League. We wish you the best of luck for the rest of the season.
