Bodde Won't Hand In Transfer Request Says Agent

Ferrie Bodde's agent Frank Schouten says the midfielder will not hand in a transfer request to the club.

The Dutch midfielder has shown a desire to leave the Liberty Stadium to join a Premiership club with Bolton Wanderers making a £3.5m bid for the player.

Last year, Bodde handed in a transfer request in order to join Derby County but he later changed his mind and decided it was best if he stayed with the Swans.

He might have done the same this year, with Bolton making a bid for him and the fact that it's unlikely that a club will match our £5m valuation for someone who's been injured since November.

However, Schouten has told the News of the World:

'He won't hand in a transfer request as he has too much respect for the club.

They looked after him while he's been out all this time injured.'


The Sunday newspaper are also linking us with a move for Fiorentina striker Samuel Di Carmine, who played under Sousa at QPR last season.

News of the World believe that Paulo Sousa has approached Serie A club about signing the 20 year-old on a season-long loan.

Yeah would hate him to put in a transfer request and miss out on a signing on-off fee. His accountant would have a *****fit.

Chase is still on for Bolton Wanderers' target Ferrie Bodde 8:50am Saturday 18th July 2009 By Marc Iles » WANDERERS are refusing to give up in their pursuit of midfield target Ferrie Bodde despite Paulo Sousa’s bold prediction that he will continue to be a Swansea City player next season. The £3.5million deal currently on the table for the 27-year-old Dutchman has remained untouched for the last seven days, prompting speculation that the Whites were ready to walk away. But The Bolton News understands that ground could soon be broken in the deal, clearing the way for the player to hold talks at the Reebok. Swans boss Sousa was in bullish mood when discussing the player’s future yesterday, claiming he was very much in his plans after making good progress in his recovery from a long-term knee injury. “He is a player with great quality,” the two-time Champions League winner said. “He is our player and he needs to look and care like the other players. “He is one of the best passers we have and he can shoot from long range too. I need to protect him and give him the right opportunity to become a better player. “His hunger and desire is important in our club. I like to have players with desire to go to the Premier League. “The hunger to come in every day to get better and better and have dreams and targets in front of you is important. I want to feel that desire from my players.” Bodde still has two years left to run on his contract, giving Swansea enough strength in the bargaining stakes to demand £5million for his services. Wanderers have already gone on record to say they would not meet that price, given the former Den Haag player has no top-flight experience outside Holland. But the current offer has been tweaked to include more money up front — an important factor considering half of the fee will be paid to his former club ADO Den Haag. Sousa also allayed fears over the player’s fitness, claiming he would be back in action in around three or four weeks. “I have spoken to the doctor who operated on him and he was happy with his knee,” said the former Portugal international. “He has a programme to help him become fit as soon as possible. Then he can integrate into the squad in training and then, slowly, progressively come into the team and get some minutes to help us in our performance
