Bodde To Leave Swansea City In January?

Dutch star Ferrie Bodde looks set to leave the club in January after his agent revealed that there is a gentleman`s agreement in place that could see the midfield maestro leave if a Premeirship club comes in for him.

Bodde has been the club`s stand out performer this campaign and has drawn interest from clubs including Bolton, West Brom and Middlesbrough.

The 26 year old signed a new long term deal following the summer`s lengthy transfer saga with Derby County. But, if Bodde`s agent is to believed, his time in the white shirt of City is limited.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Sjaron Vink said:

'He is very happy in Swansea.

'But...we made a gentlemen's agreement that if a big Premier League club came in then they would let him go.'

'There is a lot of interest at the moment for Ferrie because he is doing very well,' Vink added.

'It is the dream of every player to play in the Premier League.'


The club have insisted they have no need to sell any of their star performers, but a big money offer may just be to good to turn down. The Dutchman`s time at the Liberty could be coming to an end.

As a follower of Middlesbrough aswell as the Swans, if he was to leave, I hope he goes there rather than Bolton or West Brom. Either way, I think he's too good of a player to play for any of these three clubs, a classy act and hopefully the Swans will get the money that Bodde's ability deserves. Whether he stays or not, we should appreciate the quality of the player we've had for the last 18 months! Good luck in wherever he plays after January, hopefully it'll still be with the Swans!

Judging from the way he was in the Summer, Bodde will be off like a shot if a decent Premiership club made an official bid, he'll probably hand in another transfer request, and join the top flight club. I just hope we get a good fee for him.

bloody hope not but my money would be on him going rather than staying unfortunately.

i think he will go just hope its a decent premiereship team and we get a decent fee as we should because he has a long term contract then we should give him our blessing and wish him luck we know RM will spend the money wisely
