Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has admitted Clayton Donaldon’s new contract depends on how he starts the League One season.
After his 24 goals in all competitions last season, Donaldson has been the subject of interest from other clubs, but Rosler believes it is good for the 29-year-old to stay at Griffin Park.
This comes in spite of the arrivals of Will Grigg from Walsall, Martin FIllo from Viktoria Plzen and Conor McAleny from Everton having placed doubt on Donaldson’s future.
Rosler said: “He and his wife are settled here and he knows what he gets with me, he knows I will play him in any position.
“If he continues to play the way he can and the way we would like, we will speak to him and his agent – we just wanted to see how he starts the season.
“At his age he needs to make the right decisions in terms of where he plays, and Brentford is a good decision.”
Rosler heralded Donaldson’s versatility ahead of a possible 100th start for the striker at Gillingham tomorrow.
He said: “He has been performing very well for me. I really like working with Clayton. He is a fantastic option to have.”
