Roberto Martinez says he's not surprised at the lack of interest in his players during the January transfer window.
His side have received much praise this year from a number of Championship managers, having watched us play some superb football this term.
Players such as Angel Rangel, Ashley Williams, Darren Pratley, Ferrie Bodde and Leon Britton have been performing at a consistent high level since the campaign started in August, most of which could arguably play at a higher level. There have also been rumours that Premiership scouts have visited the Liberty Stadium to watch them play.
Jason Scotland is another player who comes into the category above as he has proved the doubters wrong by continuing his superb goal scoring record. He scored 29 last season and has 12 to his name this year, giving him an average of scoring in every 2 games since he first signed.
Despite all of this though, Martinez has told the Evening Post that he hasn't received any interest this month for any of his players:
|'We have had no interest so far and hopefully we won't get any,'|
'I think the reason why nobody has come in for any of our players is that our financial situation is quite well known.
'Other clubs realise that we don't have to sell any players.
'The other factor is that if you look where Swansea City are, we are a club that is still growing and still progressing.
'Other clubs know we are not going to accept a bid for anyone.'
'We are working for the future and we want to achieve something here.
'We are in a fantastic situation financially — that was clear in the summer with Ferrie — and that's a huge strength to have.
'When clubs look to sign players, the first thing they consider is whether they will be wasting their time.
'That's why we haven't had anyone chasing our players.
'The message from us is clear — there's no point bothering trying to sign one of our players.'
