Swansea Boss Rules Out Loan Move For Dobbie

Swansea Boss Rules Out Loan Move For Dobbie

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers insists Stephen Dobbie or any other player will not be leaving the club this season.

The attacking midfielder has been linked with a loan move to either Middlesbrough or Blackpool, as the Scot currently struggles to earn himself a place in the Swansea City starting eleven.

However, it seems Dobbie will have to keep for his opportunity at the Liberty Stadium as Rodgers tells BBC Sport that none of his players will be leaving on loan.

'I have to protect the club so none of the senior players will be going out,'

'I have got empathy for Stephen. I have spoken to Stephen to explain the situation and I'm sure he has been frustrated not to make the squads.

'But the players are well paid, so it's just unlucky for them and he has to get on with it.

'I know Stephen wants to play games. The great thing about him is that he is not driven by money - he is purely driven by playing football.

'But ultimately I have got to think about what happens at Swansea City.

'Look at what happened last week - all of a sudden we lost two players in a couple of days to injury in Joe Allen and Kemy Agustien.

'We could well lose more players over a longer period and, when that happens, I need players at Swansea who I can call on.'
