Jenkins Expects A Quiet Transfer Deadline Day

Jenkins Expects A Quiet Transfer Deadline Day

Huw Jenkins says tomorrow's transfer deadline day will be a quiet one for Swansea City.

The Swans chairman will be glad to see the back of the January transfer window and then what will hopefully be the end of speculation linking Leon Britton with a move to Wigan Athletic.

Jenkins has told Wales Online that no more players will be coming in, but a few could be leaving once the loan window opens.

"The window comes at a poor time,"

"Nothing gets done in the right manner and the sooner it is changed the better.

"I don`t think it benefits anyone."


Leon Britton's future at the Liberty Stadium has been in severe doubt over the last few months. The midfielder is refusing to discuss a contract extension until the end of the season, and he also confirmed last week that Roberto Martinez had contacted the club about his availability.

Huw Jenkins can't wait for the transfer window to end, he's not a fan of it arriving half-way through a season and it'll see Leon Britton stay on until the end of the season at least.

Another important midfielder, Darren Pratley has recently been linked with a £1.5m bid from Nottingham Forest, but when asked about it, Huw Jenkins said:

"There is nothing to say on it. You`re always going to get speculation, especially the better we play and the better of players play.

"When you`re sat this level it happens and you get used to it."


Who should we loan out when the loan window opens this week?

totally agree with what huw says here. it unsettles our players like britton and thats one of the main reasons why sousa is leaving him out of the team. he's better off staying here, few players have left here and improved their careers.
