Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has ruled out Sky Sports' claims that the club has made a £3m bid for Middlesbrough striker Marvin Emnes.
A bid right now for the striker seemed highly unlikely considering that Michael Laudrup has only just arrived in Swansea City and that he is probably unaware of who Marvin Emnes is, as he currently focuses on assessing his new squad ahead of the start of pre-season training.
Jenkins said that the club did enquire about Emnes, but they did so six weeks ago when Brendan Rodgers was still manager - revealing that he would have been a Summer target had he stayed at the Liberty Stadium this Summer.
Emnes played for the Swans on loan under Rodgers in the season before last, and scored the all-important goal that gave us a memorable away win against arch rivals Cardiff City.
Last season Emnes scored 14 goals in 42 League appearances.
'We made an enquiry with Middlesbrough six weeks ago regarding Marvin's availability. We needed to test the water.
'But that was six weeks ago when Brendan Rodgers was the manager. We have certainly not made an enquiry since then.
'Having just appointed a new manager in Michael Laudrup, all current and new options are being assessed. Michael, with the help of the recruitment staff, will decide over the next few weeks the direction we take regarding potential new signings.
'It's important our supporters are aware of this and not to read too much into the host of names being linked with the club at present or in the future.'
