Jenkins: 'We've Given Ourselves A Chance'

Jenkins: 'We've Given Ourselves A Chance'

Whilst being content with Swansea City's transfer dealing's, the Swans chairman is left astonished at other Premier League club's buying policy.

Huw Jenkins - the transfer windows least biggest fan, has defended the signing's Swansea City have made and questioned the ambition of other Premier League clubs, by signing out of favour players at other clubs:

'I look at what many people seem to regard as ambition on deadline day and to me it is astonishing,' said the Swansea chairman. 'Clubs sign players who are second or third- choice in other Premier League sides and fans see that as a massive boost.

'They are players who are unwanted at other clubs — they are players who have failed elsewhere.

'Then people seem to think they are going to be saviours at their club, and that just highlights what the transfer window can do. I find it astonishing how it works.'


Some Swansea fans may feel a statement like this is a contradiction with the deadline day signing of Federico Bessone - who himself, was out of favour at Championship club Leeds and indeed appeared to look out of his depth in League 1 whilst on loan.

However, with the signing's the Swans have made in the entire transfer window, the fans I'm sure will be happy on the whole.

cyjax is right-what is Jenkins talking about? Leroy Lita? what a no-hoper--never cut it at any level. Get real, swansea--with this squad there is only one way we are going---back to the championship.
