Promotion may convince Reds ace to stay
Kyle McFadzean admits his future at Crawley could hinge on whether the club is successful in gaining promotion to League One next season.
The defender has been in sparkling form during this campaign and was named in the PFA League Two team of the year on Sunday alongside former Reds striker Tyrone Barnett.
McFadzean’s performances have attracted interest from clubs at a higher level and Crawley rejected a £1.3million bid for him and Barnett from Peterborough in January. Barnett was subsequently allowed to join Posh three weeks later for a fee in excess of £1million and there is likely to be a queue of suitors hoping to snap up McFadzean in the summer.
The 25-year-old admits it is hard seeing Barnett playing in the Championship but is putting his personal future to one side as he focuses on helping Reds clinch the final automatic promotion spot.
McFadzean said: “It was hard seeing Tyrone go but at the end of the day football is football and these things happen. Tyrone is a quality player and he got a move to the Championship so good luck to him.
“There is a bit of jealousy as it is a dream to play in Championship. Everyone wants to play as high as they can but if I keep doing the business then hopefully my chance will come.
“I just want to get promoted with Crawley and whatever happens happens. If we make it into League One it could be a factor in me staying because there are a lot of big clubs in that division like Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Huddersfield Portsmouuth and Coventry.
“Crawley have also got a nice new stand which makes the ground look a lot better so I think there are good things ahead for the club.”
