'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Change In Transfer Policy, says Jenkins

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has said the club will not break the bank to fund new signings in the January transfer window.

Jenkins has said he expects manager Roberto Martinez to bring in at least a couple of new faces to the squad as the Swans look to challenge the play-off spots.

But Jenkins says the club have no chance of competing financially with the likes of Sheffiels United and QPR, and he will not jeopardise the future of the club by trying to do so.

Jenkins explained the clubs position to the Western Mail:

"In terms of January, I would expect Roberto to bring in one or two in positions he would like to strengthen - but only if the right players become available at the right price."

"It seems some managers will be given everything that`s available in order for them to bring in what they want and then, when that manager goes, all of a sudden another budget has to appear from nowhere to put it right.'

"We work differently to that, going from signing to signing, contract to contract and looking at each one on an individual basis.'

"It has worked well for us before and we will continue to do so. I like to think it`s more of a common sense approach than anything else and something that`s done in the best interests of the club."

"I think I am right in saying there are six teams each receiving over 10m to cover any losses or shortfall they might have developed since relegation form the Premier League."

"But, because of the way we run the club so tightly financially off the field, it does enable us to do more on the field than perhaps other football clubs that have a similar income to us.'

"That`s the path we`ve decided to take for a while and we`re happy to do that to help us compete."


Meanwhile, the club's official site is reporting that former Jack Darren Way broke both arms and legs in a car crash on Wednesday.
