Jenkins Criticises Liverpool For Bony Talks

Jenkins Criticises Liverpool For Bony Talks
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has criticised Liverpool for holding talks with striker Wilfried Bony - without their permission to do so.

The 25 year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs recently, but Liverpool have suddenly emerged as a possible destination for the frontman.

Reports say that Bony is 'desperate' for a move to Anfield to play Champions League football next season.

Huw Jenkins said:

'I have had no talks with Liverpool until now, and I would be very surprised if a club like Liverpool are doing any kind of negotiations with a player or player's agent behind our back,'

'I would have thought somebody from Liverpool would have been in touch if they are really interested in Wilfried.

'There's a way of doing things. I know things are different in this day and age, but the usual rule of thumb is that when you are trying to complete a transfer, you deal with a club first and then the player comes after that.

'That's the nature of the system.'


With Suarez set to complete a move to Barcelona, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting Wilfried Bony as a replacement, but he'll have to make a bid of at least £20m or so to tempt the Swans to sell - and he'll also have to get in contact with the Swans FIRST, to expect any sort of deal to go through.
