Swansea To Discuss Allen's Future After Olympics

Swansea To Discuss Allen's Future After Olympics

After confirming they've received interest from Liverpool in Joe Allen, Swansea City say they will discuss his future at the club after the Olympic Games.



Despite a written agreement preventing Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers from buying any of his former players, the Irishman has contacted his former club about the young Welshman.

The Swans have been rather angered by rumours revealing potential clauses in his contract, an apparent £15m release clause, as well as speculation that Allen had handed in a transfer request, which his aother has denied.

Other clubs have shown an interest in Joe Allen, with Spurs one outfit to be linked with the Welsh international. They beat the Reds to the signing of former loanee Gylfi Sigurdsson this Summer. Could lightning strike twice as its becoming more and more likely that the 22 year-old could depart the Liberty Stadium.

Allen is currently taking part in the Olympic Games for Team GB which makes it difficult for the Swans to reach a quick conclusion on whether he wants to stay or move on to a different Premier League challenge elsewhere.

Swansea City were forced to make the following statement:

"Swansea City can confirm that Liverpool have expressed an interest in Joe Allen, despite a written agreement with Liverpool not to approach any players within the 12-month period of former manager Brendan Rodgers leaving for Anfield.

"There has also been interest from other clubs regarding his possible availability and the club is due to speak to Joe, as originally planned, about the situation when he returns from GB duty.

"The club is not prepared to release any details on whether any formal bids have been made at this stage or details of Joe`s contract, which are private and confidential. The club is extremely disappointed that speculation regarding certain aspects of his contract have been released to the media by parties outside the club.

"Fortunately the club is in a financial position where it does not need to sell any of its players and will continue to work in the best interests of its supporters, who are our priority, and the club to provide new manager Michael Laudrup with the best opportunity to be successful in the forthcoming Premier League campaign."
