Sousa: Signing Players Is Hard Due To Wage Demands

Paulo Sousa admits that he is finding it difficult to sign new players on similar wages to his current players.

Transfer fees aren't the problem says the Swansea City manager, but it's finding players whose wage demands fit within our current budget.

The 38 year-old is keen to sign a striker, he has also targeted a defender as well as a midfielder on loan.

Sousa told BBC Sport:

'When we bring in players, we bring them with more or less the same level of wages that we have here,'

'They are very hard to find. It's not a question of buying.'

'The fans would like to see new players but we need to care about the things that have been done in the past.

'It's not easy to bring in players with wages completely different to the wages we have here.

'If you do, you create a lot of instability in your group and we care about that a lot.

We try to keep everyone happy with their wages and contract.'

'We are close, speaking and trying.'

Danny Webber, a striker released by Sheffield United earlier on in the Summer, is the latest player linked with a move to the club. Sousa has confirmed his interest in the forward.

at some point the wage structure has to be broken if we are going to challenge at top flight, seems as if our players earn a pitance, is that why we are having troble keeping players too

It has to be cyjax, it has to be adjusted to within our finances. We just can't attract good enough players at this level.
KevinE
well we must get used to being a lower champ side then, wages will only get worse, and then so will our team
cyjax
Unless we have a Knight in shining armour coming along we have to be patience and build up Swansea City FC into a major force - look at Bolton, Burnley, etc.

Bolton have backing albeit small and Burnley will come straight back down
