'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Only Premiership can lure Trundle

Kenny Jackett believes it will take a Premiership club in the top half of the league to force Lee Trundle into opting for a move out of Swansea.

Both the club and the player himself turned down the move as the scouser said he'd prefer to stay with Swansea rather than joining Wednesday, currently third from bottom in the Championship.

Talking to the Western Mail, Jackett said: 'Speaking to you very honestly, if a very big club came in for Lee - one in the top half of the Premier League - then the player's attitude might be different.'

'I think it would have to be a top club that manages to take Lee away from Swansea. There are perhaps some clubs in the Championship who would get him, but that's only a perhaps.

'If you look at where Sheffield Wednesday are and where we are....I would say it would take a Premier League club.'

'The chairman and I talked about it (Sheffield Wednesday's bid) at length, and we both felt we wanted to keep Lee and build a team around him,' Jackett said.

'The good thing about it was it was a football decision. Financially, we're not in a position where we have to act in desperation.

'If you want to build a club and move forward, you don't sell good centre-forwards. That would send the club backwards.

Jackett also said in an interview last week that around 30 other clubs are keeping an eye on Stevenage's George Boyd. Kevin Nugent watched the youngster score against Dagenham & Redbridge.
