Iriekpen Withdraws Transfer Request

Iriekpen Withdraws Transfer Request

Swansea defender Izzy Iriekpen has withdrawn his transfer request.

He handed in a request for a transfer last month purely for ''footballing reasons'' after a spell on a substitutes bench. At the time he said he felt he had to be starting games.

He's started the last few games however and Jackett's departure could well get him back in the club's first team plans when a new manager is brought in.

His contract expires this Summer but the former West Ham centre back is keen to stay according to our official site.

I think Jackett told him he wasn't in his plans. Now he's gone it's a clean slate for him here. Hopefully we'll see what Watt is like as well.

Another reason could be that Austin is simply out of form and Izzy is the natural replacement. But you both might be right that after KJ's departure certain players feel the another chance coming.

Good news. Transfer window now closed so he may as well stay. In three months time he will be a free agent and can choose the right move for himself.
