Swansea chairman reveals deal for Senna could still go ahead
Swansea confirmed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur Stephen Caulker on loan this morning and the news could get even better for Swans fans.
Marcos Senna told Swansea that he would be open to a move to South Wales just over a fortnight ago, and with the Villarreal player out-of-contract, Swansea were set to snap up the free transfer of the summer.
Talks stalled last week after Swansea manger Brendan Rodgers suggested Swansea would be unable to cope with the former Spanish international’s wage demands, and reports in the media suggested Senna would re-sign with Villarreal.
But there was good news for the Swans fans who attended a question and answer session with Huw Jenkins yesterday after the Swansea chairman revealed there is still a chance Senna could be a Premier League player next season.
When questioned on the Senna situation, Jenkins simply replied “It’s not dead.”
He may be 34-years-old but there is no doubt the experienced midfielder would bring a wealth of knowledge to the South Wales club whose ambitions are to remain in the Premier League next season.
Of the three promoted teams Swansea are the side expected to fare worst in the top flight of English football next season and are the favourites to be relegated at 4/7.
There’s no doubt the Swans are in for a real battle but their style of football will prove a big hit with the neutrals and there will be plenty of people cheering on Swansea next season.
It’s 5/4 that Swansea stay up this morning but they open their Premier League campaign with a trip to Manchester City.
However home matches against Wigan Athletic and Sunderland follow and a solid start to the Premier League campaign would be a huge boost to confidence levels at the Liberty Stadium.
