First 5m Signing Not Far Away Says Swansea Boss

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says it won't be far away before they make their first 5m signing.

The Irishman says the club aren't in a position to make 10m or 15m signings like a lot of other Premier League clubs can, but Danny Graham at 3.5m won't Swansea's record signing for much longer it seems.

Who knows for now, but hopefully Hoffenheim loanee Gylfi Sigurdsson could be that 5m signing this Summer. The Icelandic midfielder has proved a superb signing this year, scoring both goals in last week's 2-0 win at Wigan Athletic.

Brendan Rodgers said:

'The time when we spend 5m on one player may not be far away,'

'If it's the right type of player and everything is set up for the club to benefit, and if I believe as manager it's the right thing to do, all we can do is put that forward and see what happens.'

'There's no doubt you need quality and a lot of top players cost money.

'Look at someone like (Steven) Caulker. If you were to buy someone like that it would cost a lot of money, and Gylfi will cost a bit of money.

'But we are not going to be regularly spending 10m or 15m on players because this club is not set up to do that and we won't be looking to do that.'
