Transfer Gossip - Lopez In? Bodde Out?

Reports have emerged today suggesting that Swansea City are set to unveil our first signing since the arrival of new Paulo Sousa, while the transfer saga involving Ferrie Bodde continues.

The Evening Post believe that the Swans are ready to unveil Jordi Lopez as our new signing, but there are completely different stories on where Ferrie Bodde's future lies.

Some sources are saying there's been no developments because Bolton have yet to meet our valuation of the player, while others say the Dutch midfielder is close to joining the Reebok Stadium club.

Who knows what exactly is going on regarding Bodde and a possible move to Bolton, but it's becoming increasingly likely that he's certain to leave Swansea City in this transfer window or the next.

Gary Megson says he is very close to completing the signings of 3 players, and one of them could well be Bodde.

"We are really close to getting three transfers sorted, and we need them, because this squad is nowhere near strong enough,"

"Phil Gartside (Bolton chairman) has got a list of players who I feel would strengthen us, and there are also the names of players who we would allow to leave the club, but we have got to get a lot busier if that is to happen."
the Bolton boss said.

Lopez could be lined up as Ferrie's replacement, a defensive midfielder who's particularly good at passing and set pieces.

The Spaniard has already held talks with Paulo Sousa and Huw Jenkins and a move is expected if he's happy with what contract we offer him.

I hope we do sign Lopez, Bodde leaving doesn't bother me, wrong attitude and lack of commitment to the Swans
GThomas
hope lopez joins but also hope bodde stays.
james,jackarmy
Yeah I'm in the hope he stays too.

Played well without Bodde most of the season, so it shows he wasn't the heartbeat of Swansea, Lopez can do the same job and with a better attitude, bring it on

Correct cyjax, no big loss, a nice gain for us of around 2m, another 2m that should be spent on players or wages to attract players to sign for low fees
GThomas
Yes But i also feel remember that 8 Game draw spell we had i feel Bodde would have given us a few wins out of that.

that was just adjusting our play to suit without him
