Jenkins: Transfer Budget Will Stay The Same
Swansea City Huw Jenkins insists that the transfer budgets will stay the same next season.
Paulo Sousa showed his disappointment a few months ago that he was unable to strengthen the squad with a few loan signings, with the club apparently reluctant to spend any more money on players.
Speaking about the meetings with the board this week, Sousa said finances would be the top of his agenda as they discuss the club's future.
"There are no doubts in our minds,"
"We know how we want to run our club.
"It is up to individuals whether they want to work within those parameters. The budget is not their choice, it`s ours because we run the club.
"We have got the club where it is today by running it our way. We will continue to do that and I think the majority of our fans support that decision.
"I can assure everyone that we won`t be following the dangerous paths other clubs have gone down.
"There is no doubt, with the increasing parachute payments, that it will get harder, but we just have to remain big and strong and keep working harder to make sure we compete."
"I think Paulo is fully committed to the way we run the club, though. He knew that would be the case when he joined us and I have confidence he is committed to remaining on that basis."
"He has got two years remaining on his contract and that`s the situation with Paulo. We have to discuss how the season went and what we should do next season - as we always do.
"I think the club has had a very good season, especially when you consider what we lost over the summer.
"But, when you take the last two months in isolation, which is only natural, you can`t hide from the fact it`s disappointing."
