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.
