Swindon's Paul Evans is upset after hearing nothing in regards to contract talks.
Swindon Town's Paul Evans has blasted the club's management staff after receiving no contact in regards to his new contract.
The 30-year-old was instructed to prove his fitness before The Robins would consider offering a new deal, but Evans has criticised the lack of communication from the club medics to himself, having been left without news of a medical.
Evans was brought to The County Ground by former boss Dennis Wise, but after missing much of the season through injury, current manager Paul Sturrock is looking for reassurance as to his fitness.
"No-one from the club has contacted me at all since the end of May, when Martyn Starnes [chief executive] got in touch asking whether I would be back for pre-season," Evans told The Swindon Advertiser.
"I could not answer him then because at that point I didn't know how the ankle would stand up to the treatment.
"But since then there has been nothing from the club at all, so your guess is as good as mine really about my future at Swindon Town."
Evans continued to say the lack of contact from the Swindon management has upset him, and admitted he was clueless as to where his future lies.
"I am waiting on the club now because I really don't know whether I am part of their plans," he said.
"I am surprised and very disappointed not one person has phoned me up and asked how my rehab is going. Neither the manager nor the physio has been in touch.
"At this precise moment I am very upset about it, I just can't believe it to be honest.
"It would just be nice to hear from someone at the club so I can start thinking about next season."
