Martinez 'No Imminent Arrivals'

Martinez 'No Imminent Arrivals'

There will be no rush to sign players according to Swansea manager Roberto Martinez.

There has been growing speculation over Blackpool Striker Keigan Parker since the deal for broke down with Barnsley for the Scot this week.The tactican has named the out of favour striker as a target.

Martinez has also suffered a injury blow to Andrea Orlandi who has in recent weeks started to hit form for his new employers. This has not pressured the Spaniard to rush into the transfer market and the former Wigan player added there will be no immediate arrivals at the club.

Strengthening of the squad is needed following Warren Feeney's return to Cardiff City and Reassurances were sought after the Northern Ireland international picked up a knee injury, into the possibility of Feeney joining the club on a permanent deal.

Those assurances could not be given at this stage and it looks increasingly likely that the deal has been stopped in its tracks.

Huw Jenkins has supported his manager in recent weeks and has also indicated there will be no panic buys at the club in this transfer period. Jenkins has taken a more measured approach to transfer dealings in the last year much to the benefit of the club.

Should Martinez not secure players going into the business end of the season he has no qualms about utilising the emergency loan system.

He Told The Western Mail

''"There`s no imminent arrivals.Obviously we have the Warren Feeney situation and we need to see how that develops."

It`s a body we are now missing and, if it doesn`t work out, we will have to bring someone in because we are very thin in that area."

Now Andrea is injured we must also now see if someone comes into that department as well."

Any activity is more to do with the injuries than anything. We have to look at replacing the players we are now missing."

The window has never really been a problem for me. I don`t work within a window.

As a manager if you need to bring in a player, you just use the emergency loan system.

Even then you can bring players in for the short term that are actually committed for the long term.

So the window is really a bit of nonsense at the moment. I`m not saying they are negative, but they aren`t positive either."



Swansea City will face a ravaged Luton Town side at Kenilworth Road tomorrow.

I still think we will have another Spaniard or 1 in before January is out.
