Jenkins Sees Off The Bodde Snatchers

Jenkins Sees Off The Bodde Snatchers

Swansea City have successfully managed to keep hold of midfield star Ferrie Bodde it seems as the transfer window ended at 5pm this afternoon.

The Dutchman has attracted the interest of Premiership sides Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic, and both clubs made bids this month for the 27 year-old.

Chairman Huw Jenkins rejected Bolton's final £3.5m offer before former boss Roberto Martinez came in with an improved bid today that didn't come close to our £5m valuation of the player.

While you might think that it's a bit early to confirm Bodde is staying, it's only 5:05pm, but Wigan Athletic have confirmed no more signings will be made this year.

Bodde's future at the club was in doubt last season as well when he was close to joining Derby County, but he decided that it was the best decision to stay at the Liberty Stadium.

Despite the fact that he hasn't played a single game since November 2008, clubs have still shown an interest in buying him but credit has to be given to Huw Jenkins for standing firm and turning down the money.

According to his agent, Bodde expressed a keen interest to leave the Swans during pre-season to move up to the Premiership, and it looks like he'll be looking to put himself in the 'shop window' when the transfer window opens again in January, no doubt we'll be rejecting more bids in the new Year if he continues to perform like he did last season.

Bodde is expected to make his return after 11 months on the sidelines some time in September, and manager Paulo Sousa says he will appear for the Reserves on September 9th when we face Swindon at the Gnoll, Neath, kick off is at 2pm.

How long can you hold onto a player with that potential while you are in the championship? ... Just a matter of when he goes not if he goes.
