Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins does not expect any new arrivals as transfer deadline day is upon clubs up and down the country.
Jenkins had indicated a few weeks ago that a Centre Back and Striker were on Roberto Martinez's transfer shopping list. Fabien Brandy 's signing little under two weeks ago has ticked of the striker requirement on the list. Brandy a Manchester United player has featured in 3 games and has scored 1 goal in the 4-0 drumming of promotion rivals and 2nd placed Doncaster Rovers.
Quick not to rule out any use of the loan market , should the league leaders suffer an injury blow or suspensions the club may dip into the emergency loan market in the hunt for cover. Whilst there are no imminent arrivals at the Liberty Stadium there will be no departures as no offers have been placed on any of squad from other clubs.
There will be reinforcements as Swansea entre the critical part of the season with Darren Way finally back from injury could prove a vital addition ; with the prospect of Liverpool loanee Paul Anderson out for 4 weeks after suffering a thigh strain due to the lack of a full warm up ahead of the top of the table clash against Nottingham Forest.
He Spoke To The Evening Post
|'We are not really working on anything at the moment and we haven't really been trying this month.Managers are always looking to strengthen their side, but I think Roberto (Martinez) is happy with what he has got at the moment.|
We've got Darren Way back now and Owain Tudur Jones is back in training, and if we do bring anyone else in it's likely to be via the loan market.If someone we had been tracking had become available this month, perhaps we would have done something.
But there'll be no panic for us when you consider the emergency loan system is there for us until March.Leeds have brought in a number of players this month and I don't think they've won a game yet,'
We are looking more at what we're going to be doing in the transfer market in the summer. It worked last summer, signing players and giving them time to bed in, and I think there's probably a lesson to be learned there.'
