Jenkins: We Will Not Panic Buy

Jenkins: We Will Not Panic Buy

Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins expects Roberto Martinez to strengthen his Squad in the new year with the acquisition of a new striker and centre back.

Swansea have been tracking a number of targets over the year with Blackpool's out of form striker Keigan Parker being the strongest contender with a move to South Wales.

The squad will be further bolstered with the return of loanees Darren Way and Ian Craney who will return to Swansea City this coming Wednesday after their successful loan spells with Yeovil Town and Accrington Stanley.

However both players have been subject to interest from their former clubs with Stanley manager John Coleman making it no secret he would like to resign Ian Craney on a permanent deal .

Midfielder Darren Way has been a huge success in his second spell at Huish Park but came out fighting stating he has "unfinished business" with Swansea City

Warren Feeney's future at the Liberty Stadium has been called into question following his ankle ligament damage suffered in the 3-0 win to Southend United.

As talks into the future of the striker continue the player has suffered a setback to his Swansea career as reports suggest Blackpool striker Kiegan Parker has agreed terms with the club with only a fee yet to be agreed.

This will also put Darryl Duffy's future at the club further into doubt as Spaniard Guillem Bauza has seemed to have surmounted the Scott.

Chairman Huw Jenkins has insisted that there will be no panic buying at the club this time around.

Jenkins told The Evening Post:

'Yeovil and Accrington have made noises about wanting to keep them, but neither club have made any contact with us."

If they want to get in touch it's up to them, but we're in no rush to do anything and we're not going to try to push players out."

Both Darren and Ian are a little way off our first team at the moment, but if anyone comes in for them, it will be down to them to decide if they want to stay and fight for their places. "

Roberto has made it clear that he would like a striker and has kept on about a centre-half.

But we all know we've got a good squad of players here, so there'll be no panic. There is still the loan market to use after the January window is closed."

'Roberto has other strikers in mind and he has confirmed his interest in Keigan Parker, but once again we will just have to wait and see what happens in January.'


Supporters are reminded to get to the Liberty Stadium early today as bumper crowds are expected. Turnstiles will be open from 1pm onwards.

It is quite obvious that nothing like that is necessary in our current situation and squad depth. One more striker and deffo a new CB would be enough.
