Jenkins: Plans In Place For Summer Spending

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says that plans are in place to strengthen the squad in the Summer.

Although the Swans missed out on a few targets in the January transfer window - including Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas, and Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas, Huw Jenkins has revealed that plans are in place to try and make these transfers happen in the Summer transfer window.

Jenkins revealed to the Evening Post that some of their targets wanted to stay at their respective clubs until the Summer. One of those was definitely Iago Aspas who expressed a desire to stay at Celta Vigo for the remainder of the season at least.

"Michael and I looked weeks ago at what we felt we needed to do in January and one of the things he wanted sooner rather than later was to sign Roland Lamah,"

"We got that done as early as we could, and there were one or two other things which we worked on behind the scenes.

"Ideally we might have got the players in during January, but in a couple of cases the players who we felt were right for us wanted to stay with their current clubs until the summer.

"We will review the situation then, but they are things we have worked on and we feel we have put ourselves in a good position.

"We have planned these things in readiness for the summer.

"Hopefully, when the transfer window opens again, we can get things done quickly. Hopefully we can make sure we get our squad together before our pre-season trip — that`s our aim."


Jenkins also how said that a striker will be a priority in the Summer for Michael Laudrup following the mutual agreement to sell Danny Graham to Sunderland for £5m in January.

"We were both pleased that we were not in a scramble trying to bring players in at the end of the transfer window and Michael is happy with his squad,"

"We made the decision between us that selling Danny was the right decision to make at that time, and now we move on and get ready for the summer."

"I think nearly every club who are aiming to compete at the top end of the Premier League will be looking for forwards who can add something different,"

"We will be looking to go down that road, and Michael is confident we can get the players we want in the summer."
