Swansea City Bid £100,000 For Striker?

Swansea City have apparently made a £100,000 bid for 19 year-old striker Rory Donnelly.

Manager Brendan Rodgers was in Belfast last week, says BBC Sport, as he watched the youngster in action for his side Cliftonville.

It is now understood that the £100,000 offer is currently being considered by the Cliftonville board.

A number of other clubs in the UK have been linked with the talented forward.

Cliftonville are a semi-professional team, who play football in the IFA Premiership - the national League in Northern Ireland.

Donnelly has been on excellent goalscoring form this season, helping his side get up to 2nd in the table.

He has already netted 17 goals this season, which include three hatricks as well as winning 2 goal of the month awards.

Donnelly says he's not letting all the transfer talk affect his performances:

"I`m not concentrating on all that talk,"

"I`m concentrating on my game and helping the team. Whenever the time comes to make a decision on my future. I`ll turn my thoughts to it then. We have great players here at the club who are teaching me a lot of things so all I can do is keep working hard.

"Chris Scannell, the manager (Tommy Breslin) and the whole team have really helped my game improve. With regards to my future I`ll just wait and see what happens. We have won 12 games on the bounce now and our priority is to keep that going.

"Everyone is pulling strongly together."


The Belfast Telegraph claim that there 12 clubs who are tracking him, they are:

Brentford, Chelsea, Swansea City, Everton, QPR, Sunderland, St Johnstone, Kilmarnock, Burnley, Leeds United, Peterborough United and Birmingham City.
