Swansea Need To Up Bid To Get Canas Before June

Swansea Need To Up Bid To Get Canas Before June

Real Betis have told Swansea City that they'll need to increase their bid if they want to sign Jose Canas before the Summer.

The La Liga outfit have conceded that they will lose the defensive midfielder in the Summer anyway, as Canas has apparently agreed to take a paycut to join Swansea, but if they want him earlier, they'll have to make a higher bid than the initial £800,000 or so on offer.

Reports suggest that Swansea City will have to bid around £1m for a player that they could sign for free in June, but will they want to risk the chance of another club coming in for the free agent then, or offer a little more to secure his signing?

Hopefully Jenkins will give Laudrup the freedom to go ahead and offer more money for the 25 year-old, as he could be another impressive Spanish bargain.

Canas has secured a regular place at Real Betis, the club where his career started, and has proven to be an excellent reader of the game, as well as passing impressive passing and defensive skills. He'd offer something different to the current Swansea City midfield, a player to sit just in front of the defence to offer protection as well as good distribution to start an attack when possession has been won.

Real Betis manager Pepe Mel said:

'It has been decided, unless Swansea say something different, that Canas stays here until June 30,'

'As we saw in Zaragoza (last Friday), he is a committed player, he gives everything and he stood out as he always does. We left him out for the cup game as a precaution, but he will train as normal on Thursday.'
