Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is in no rush to give Derby County an answer regarding their third bid for midfielder Ferrie Bodde.
Yesterday the Pride Park outfit lodged a new bid to lure the highly influential player to Derby. In a deal worth up to the full evaluation of £2 million reports have hinted that the deal could include a player plus cash deal.
Previous bids of £500,000 and £750,000 turned down but this latest bid by the relegated premiership outfit could prove to be successful. Jenkins has revelled he wants Roberto Martinez and the former Ado Den Hagg player to talk through footballing issues and believes the club are in the driving seat.
Jenkins Told The SWEP:
|"Derby have made an improved offer. But nothing has really changed from our point of view. Yes we have made clear our thoughts on Ferrie's value, but only because people have asked the question.|
It doesn't change the fact that we don't want him to leave and whether he does or not will ultimately be a football issue. We are in a comfortable position where we don't have to sell players and we haven't been touting anyone around.
For us it's a question of whether Roberto (Martinez) and Ferrie feel he can play for us and be happy next season. As far as Derby are concerned, I've told them I will come back to them and I haven't given them a time-scale.
We are in no rush. We are relaxed and we want Roberto and Ferrie to talk through football issues. The fact is we don't want the player to go anywhere. Whatever anyone else bids for one of our players, we don't have to sell. And at present we are still pursuing every angle to try to make sure Ferrie stays with us. It's our job to keep our best players."
