Orlandi Signs Extension & Three Others In Talks

Orlandi Signs Extension & Three Others In Talks

In what could prove to be a busy week for Swansea City in the transfer market, Andrea Orlandi is first to sign a contract.

Huw Jenkins claims that because of Premier League status, he can now sit down with a number of key players in the squad to tie them down with better contract offers. He added:

'Improving and extending certain players' contracts well in advance is something we can now look into thanks to our Premier League status,' said the chairman.

'Over the last few years we have been asked by supporters why the club did not do it, but the simple explanation is that we were not in a financial position to do so.

'The budget was set to compete in the Championship, so any further money spent on securing certain players' contracts earlier would have jeopardised certain signings along the way.

'An example of that is Fabio Borini. We budgeted well and that allowed us to add a quality player like Fabio to the team for the final push.

'I think it is important to explain this to everyone connected with the club, so we are all on the same page.

'So we will be looking to sit down with the likes of Joe Allen, Nathan Dyer and Jazz Richards, for example, and ensure their contracts and cover our assets in advance.'


Huw Jenkins has also claimed there to be no truth in the rumours of the transfer of Isaac Vorsah. Jenkins added: 'Swansea City would like to confirm that there is no truth in this rumour.

'We are quickly learning that due to our new status as a Premier League club, we are being linked with players even when we have had absolutely no contact at all with their club.

But we believe it was only right to inform our supporters know what the situation really is.'


It also appears that the target Jenkins was chasing in Spain, said to be Barcelona's Jonathan Soriano has in fact stalled. Commenting on the situation he said: 'Nothing has been concluded,'

'We were prepared to offer the player an opportunity to join our squad in our first season in the Premier League, but we were not happy with the terms of the deal.'




With the uncertainty of Marcos Senna's future at Villareal, Swansea City are still hopeful of deals being pushed through ahead of a debut Premier League campaign.
