Jackett Targets 3-5 New Players

Kenny Jackett has said that he is looking to bring 3-5 players for next season as the Swans look set to splash out more cash on more recruits.

The Club invested around £1m last season on new faces and improved contracts but it proved in the end that money doesn't always guarantee success.

Chairman, Huw Jenkins said there'll be more funds available for new players as they're targetting the same players that they would have bought had they gained promotion to the Championship, he said:

'There's no two ways about it - we've got to go for automatic promotion next season.

'Kenny's got our total support to try and achieve that, and we've got to make sure all the right things are in place.

'We invested £1m last season, yet the realism is we still weren't good enough to win promotion.

'It shows that spending money and then expecting success... it just doesn't happen.

'But we're prepared to spend more money this summer because we've got to continue the momentum we've built up.

'I can't put a figure on it, but if the right players are available then there will be money available to go out and get them.

'I don't think there's too much wrong with our squad, but there are one or two positions that need strengthening and we'll be pressing ahead with our plans very shortly. We're going to target the same players we would've done had we gone up, it's just a question of whether we can persuade them to come to Swansea.

'Not necessarily players currently in the Championship, but those who Kenny thinks are more than capable of playing at that level.'


Kenny Jackett seems happy with his forward options, and it's unlikely he'll strengthen that area.

He said: 'I'd like to strengthen through most of the team, although I'm not particularly looking at my forward area,'

'I'd like three to five new players.

'Other clubs have started to sign players, but I don't think we'll be handicapped in that respect.

'There's plenty of time for us to get who we want.'

Going for Automatic promotion next time. Will you hang on to Lee Trundle?
miked_joker
Trundle says there's no chance of him leaving, I've never had any doubts of him going since he's been here. We also have Knight who will compete closely with him next season for a starting place.

i think its a battle out of fallon knight and trundle for the starting role.

A few possitions could do with a bit of competion for places
sbrjack
Fallon and Bayo will compete for the targetman job. Knight and Trundle will compete for the goalscorer job. We need a keeper, a centre half and a right sided player. Anything else would be a bonus.

Well Hartson ain't coming and i'm glad .
