Swansea City In Final Attempt To Sign Stockdale

Reports today suggest that Swansea City are going to try one last time to bring Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale to the club.

The Cottagers are not willing to sell the 25 year-old shot stopper, and while he is available on a loan transfer, manager Martin Jol is not interested in loaning him to a fellow Premiership club because he'll be unable to include a 24-recall clause in the deal.

Jol is willing to loan out Stockdale, but only to a Championship club as he'll be able to recall him instantly if he needs to.

Despite the difficulties in a potential move for Stockdale to Swansea City, Brendan Rodgers is keen on the goalkeeper and would like to bring him in as our number 1, as Nottingham Forest's Lee Camp - our other target - looks out to be out of our reach.

Brendan Rodgers told the Evening Post that he's hoping to reach a solution regarding Stockdale, and that he'll know either way within the next 1-2 days:

'I have spoken to a number of clubs about a number of keepers,'

'I spoke to (Fulham boss) Martin Jol yesterday about David Stockdale's situation.

'It's well-known that they want him to get a loan experience, but the difficulty for Fulham is that if he goes to another Premier League club, they won't have an immediate recall.

'So even though the Premier League is the best level for him to be at, strategically it may not be best for Fulham.

'But we are looking to see if there's a solution.

'We think we will know either way in the next 24 to 48 hours whether David is going to be in the list of keepers we could go for, and that's important.

'We need to know one way or the other so that we can move forward.'


Rodgers is looking for a replacement for Dorus De Vries who joined Wolves this Summer. Jose Moreira has arrived from Benfica but the Irishman is still looking for another shot stopper, what with Yves Makalambay set to leave having not being offered a new contract.
