Bodde In Talks To Sign New Swansea Contract

Bodde In Talks To Sign New Swansea Contract

Ferrie Bodde says he's in talks with Swansea City about signing a new contract at the club.

The midfielder has been out of action for 10 months after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in November, but that hasn't stopped Bolton and Wigan Athletic making bids for the Dutchman.

Swansea City rejected bids from both Premiership clubs, as they didn't come close to our £5m valuation of the player.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is now looking to extend Bodde's stay at the Liberty Stadium, and when asked if he was happy to sign a new contract, he said:

“Yes of course,”

“I have always said Swansea is a good club for me and I am happy with the situation here.

“Paulo told me straight away I was a big part of his plans and I was happy with that. I see it as a big compliment that a big player like him wants to keep me.

“It’s good to have the club standing behind you like that. I am standing behind the club as well.

“We are talking about a new contract and I’m pleased with how things are going. There is a deal on a table but I have told Huw Jenkins that I want to play first because it’s not a big deal for me and I’m not in a rush.”


Chairman Huw Jenkins also told the Western Mail:

“Over the next few weeks we want to sort out a new contract. We have got a good dialogue going with Ferrie and his agent and hopefully things can be concluded soon.

“For now it’s just great to see him back on the pitch because that’s what we have been waiting for. We are pleased to see him back involved and hopefully he will be back with the first team again soon.”


Speculation of Bodde's future at the club annoyed the midfielder during the Summer, he added:

“It’s very frustrating to keep seeing my name in the papers. Sometimes I wonder if I am the most important person in the world or something.

“I have learnt to ignore it and I didn’t answer any calls. But it wasn’t something I needed when I am spending time with my family or doing my rehab.

“I wasn’t happy about it but you have to accept it as a footballer. I have just stayed focussed on my injury and my target of playing as soon as possible for Swansea.”


With the transfer window closed, Ferrie Bodde and the club can finally concentrate on matters on the pitch and the 27 year-old will be a welcome boost to the first team.

It's always difficult to hear when a good player gets all this attention, but I'm glad he's spoken up about recent events, and we can all finally get back to playing again.
