Pratley Close To New Swansea City Deal

Pratley Close To New Swansea City Deal

Swansea City could be boosted soon as manager Brendan Rodgers says Darren Pratley is close to signing a new contract at the Liberty Stadium.

There has been strong speculation over the past couple of months linking the midfielder with a move to Nottingham Forest, but chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed that they have ended their interest in the former Fulham player.

"my view is believe it when you see it, of course it would be great news if it happens."

HAVE YOUR SAY
Losing Pratley would have been a massive blow ahead of the new season as we have already seen Leon Britton leave to join Sheffield United, plus he is one of key players in midfield.

Huw Jenkins was keen to end any speculation linking Pratley with a move out of the club, he told the Evening Post:

'Whatever has been said and written, we have always been talking to Darren and we will be speaking to him again this week to see where we are,'

'The Forest interest has moved away now. There's no link with them any more because we have ended that interest.

'And we are optimistic we can keep hold of Darren, not just for this season but for the next few seasons.

'If a top Premier League club comes in for one of our players, we are all realistic and we all understand that they will be likely to leave.

'But after that there's a balance to be struck, and we hope in Darren's case that he will sign a new deal soon.'


Manager Brendan Rodgers also said that he hopes a new deal will be concluded very soon:

'It was my number one objective to make sure one of the top midfield players in the Championship stays here,'

'We are hoping that will be concluded very, very soon.'
