Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez is on another charm offensive to land Liverpool winger Paul Anderson in a attempt to land the highly influential youngster.
It firmly seems the tug of war to sign Anderson will be a two horse race between Nottingham Forest and Swansea City. Making 36 appearances last term and scoring 8 goals, the Liverpool midfielder firmly put himself on the map with his hugely successful loan spell at the club.
Clubs both in the premiership and the championship have expressed and interest in signing the wide man but The Liberty Stadium outfit have put a £100,000 loan bid on the table that could sway the deal in favour of the South Wales club.
Swansea manager Roberto Martinez however has expressed concern over the locality of Nottingham Forest to Anderson's Melton Mowbray home. Despite the locality of the players home, the Spaniard still insists that Swansea are in the strongest position in the bidding process and that he will not need to sell the club to the player for the second time.
Martinez Told The SWEP:
|"I think probably that's the way it is in Ando's head. I know there have been other clubs interested, but I think it's between us and Forest. It has to be the Championship for him next season, he's not going to play any lower than that.|
And it's now up to Paul to decide where he wants to go. It's well worth waiting for him to decide because of the relationship we have with him. If you're going to move permanently, you need to put a lot of thought into it.
But if it's a loan move, as is the case with Paul, my personal opinion is that you don't want to change many things. You want stability and a bit of continuity within the new challenge, which is playing Championship football.
The good thing is that we don't have to sell anything about us to Ando. He really settled down here and is a hero with the fans. Now it's up to him to decide if he wants more of that. After that, it would not be good for him or for us to be hanging on."
|"What Febian brought is something that would suit us really well next season. There wasn't a day where he didn't progress and I can only see him going from strength to strength in the Championship. At the moment things are standing still a little at Manchester United because they are on holidays. We will have to wait, but Febian and United know we would love to have him back."|
