Swans Set To Improve Johnson Bid

June 11th: Swansea City are likely to make an improved bid for Wycombe defender Roger Johnson.

We previously failed with a �100,000 but Jackett is keen to sign the Chairboys' captain and is expected to double his bid for the 23 year-old.

The League 2 side don't have a manager at present and Jackett says it may be a case that they're waiting to see who their new manager will be before considering selling their players.

mattyjones has provided us with a scan of the article from the Daily Mirror:

Sky Sports and Edgware & Mill Hill Times are now also reporting news of an improved bid for Johnson.

Kenny Jackett said: "He's very strong in both boxes and would be a good addition at Swansea."

A club spokesman said: "We are still in the market for a centre back and there are still funds available to spend."

when i seen it in the paper this morning(sunday) i was very shocked because i thought Kenny gave up on him. If we do buy him could it be the end of austin's and even Gary Monk's swansea playing carrer?
I think Monk is the most likely to move on, especially if (as anticipated) Johnson gets the captain's armband. With Monk having been deputy, it's a snub he might not be too happy about.
Good luck to you. If you get him, then it will be a good buy and one in the cap for persistence.
I think that both Monk and Austin are way too slow for our defence and that if we do manage to sign Johnson then with Izzie and Watt both back fit,then both Monk and Austin will become spectators for the rest of the season, both way down the pecking order and only probably to be used in emergencies or ldv or faw cup matches. I have been very dissapointed with the defence this season,and beleive totally that they have cost us our automatic promotion,as we threw away way too many leads through out the season.This is noyhing personal but just football! If you dont do what you get paid for then you get fired! Good luck for the season,and to stay injury free!
Thats poor cutting skills their Kev
^^^ i mean mattyjones ^^^
i just ripped it out
jackett must wnt im badley 2 make all these bids..betta b worth it...nd we betta av some defenders in this season
they havnt reported this in the evening post have they?????
I hope if we secure his services otherwise this transfer window could be a very hard one .
I`ve got a horrible feeling that Izzey may be the the one to depart call me a bit paranoid but with Monk acting as club captain and one of Kenny`s favourites i`ve the feeling he`ll be staying put for a while. kenny is determined to get himself a centre back and not just for cover e.g the wycombe captain. Which leaves me wondering a bit about Izzeys situation. Losing a quality centre back such as Izzey and being stuck with a donkey such as Monk is a depressing thought and one i hope is all in my paranoid mind!!
lets hope we can secure him we need a good new defender
lets ope hez good then ..bu dnt 4get we gor izzy 2 cme bck in nd watt
can you speak properly please?!
Must be good if Jackett is so persistant!!
hes gonna end up costing about he worth that much? we could get a proven Championship player for that
I don't think we should go higher than 200,000
" hes a good player but surely hes not worth 200,000 is he?"
well kj thinks so
