Jenkins Could Force Bodde To Stay

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has revelled that the club could force Ferrie Bodde to stay with the club next season.

This latest turn in the Bodde transfer saga shows little sign of agreement between Derby County and Swansea City being reached as both clubs drift further apart in negotiations. Rams Chairman Adam Pearson no stranger to controversy to many Swans fans after the Darryl Duffy transfer saga that unfolded last summer, claimed that the midfielder had been house hunting in the area as a pre cursor to a move to Pride Park.

Derby county have thought to have offered a deal worth up to 2 million for the Dutchman but that has been received by the club with a steely resolve by Jenkins at the board at the Liberty Stadium that they will be in no rush to accept or decline the Rams third bid for the former ADO Den Haag player. Jenkins was quizzed by reporters who put the question to him, could the club force Bodde to stay and the emphatic answer to that question was firm yes.

Jenkins Told The BBC:

"We can certainly keep a player. I think Manchester United have gone on record saying Ronaldo will stay come what may and I think that's what stance clubs should take.

Our main aim is to make sure the squad is right for the start to the season - that is our priority. We will have to deal with the Ferrie Bodde situation that has been created, but from our point of view, there's no rush."


Club officials have confirmed that they have broken the Season Ticket sales record with over 8000 season ticket sales to date. 10,000 sales have been targeted by the club as the clock ticks down on the season opener at home to Nottingham Forest.

How much longer as he got left on his contract? If any players desperate to leave I would sonner them leave and not affect the rest of the squad.

dont think its a good idea to keep aplayer who does not want to be here, i would sooner take the money and make a million,his value will only decrease as his contract runs down.
