Kenny Jackett has taken left winger Kevin McLeod off the transfer list and he will rejoin the squad on July 3rd for the the start of pre-season training.
After an inconsistent season in League One from the former Everton player, Jackett placed him on the transfer list because of ''a number of things'' including a ''lack of application.''
He started the season on fire though, as fellow left sided midfielder Marc Goodfellow went down the pecking order and joined Grimsby.
He scored 7 goals early on, including a superb hatrick in the 7-1 thrashing against Bristol City at the Liberty Stadium.
In the later part of the season though, speculation grew of McLeod going out too much and not long later, the news broke out that he was transfer listed.
After more than a month out of action, Jackett put him back into the starting line-up and he was given a chance to prove why he should stay with the Swans.
He played well up until he suffered a broken ankle against Southend - the last home game of the season. His unlucky injury meant he had to miss the play-offs, but he did recover rapidly to come on as a substitute late on in the play-off final.
''Kevin's off the transfer list,''
''He will be back for pre-season training on July 3 with the rest of the players.
''He's under contract (for another two years) and I'm not going to make any changes with regard to Kevin.''
''Kevin has pace to get in behind teams which is a big thing,''
''But he has had such a variable season, going from being terrific to very poor, and he has to learn from that.
''As good as he can be on his day, he must try to maintain some sort of consistency, particularly when the winter comes.
''When things are not fresh and the sun's not shining, Kevin needs to produce.''
''Andy Robinson has done very well out there,''
''He has got most of his goals from that position and I have to consider that.''
Meanwhile, Jackett is wasting no time in trying to bring in new players and said.
''I haven't made any bids yet, but I've made plenty of enquiries,''
''I'm looking at some frees, some reasonable transfer fees. There are also out-of-contract players who've said they'll come down and have a chat with us.
''If I can get players in sooner rather than later I will, because building my squad for next season is the No. 1 thing in my mind.''
