Swansea City Transfer Thread 07:15 - May 17 with 44622 viewsHeadmaster

Thought we might need one of these now that silly season has started.

Matt Grimes is open to joining Everton from "Football Insider" - how reliable are they? They say in another article that Brighton are looking at Chris Wilder after being frustrated in their attempt to talk to Potter.

The key word there is "want".

Still think there will be a big twist with players leaving, I would suggest it will happen in the last 48hrs of the transfer window.


I hope not, but got a feeling this will happen as well, and they'll use alot of the U23's telling us Cooper was brought in to bring the youngsters through and it's a long term project.

According to Nixon we want 20+ for McBurnie and there's interest in VDH but we want 10+ for him.


Expect VDH to go - last season of contract (with extension) and doesn’t seem as if he is in a hurry to commit any further.

Make no bones about it, if the clause was not in for the club to trigger an extension then he would have been off.

Vdh is a saleable asset so the clause was always going to be triggered by the club, would not be surprised if they are auctioning him around as we type.

Mark my words, there will be a retake of the January transfer window come the end of this current one.

Poll: Swansea City No 1.

I hope we manage to keep both Oli and MVH, but if I had to choose, I'd rather keep Oli. I think his overall contribution is so important, especially in terms of goal scoring and motivating the other young players.
Saying that, if an offer came of £20m, I would let him go.
GOt to be looking at 12-15m for MVH though. I've heard £10m being touted.
We are so lucky to have Birch overseeing these things now. I trust him to get the best deals for the club.

A bit off topic, but couldn't find a better place to post this and don't want to make a new thread for such things.

Just saw a pic for the Man Utd squad they are taking on tour.
It feels strange to see DJ's name alongside all these...
He's not just a player for the future there, having games for their u23s etc. He's going to be given a good chance to shine by the look of it.

Chuffed for him.

Probably a free transfer will come in.
I think it's easier to get a decent CB than replace Oli. Some good ones have been moving already, including free transfers.

£10m for vdH, £5m for CCV.

Not my preferred option but we know he's available and that was supposedly Spurs asking price.

Swans have apparently priced Oli at £20m and MVH at £10m.
Both prices are well within the reach of any club wanting to sign them and I definitely don't think we should take any less.

With the club saying that 20mill and 10mill are the least we would sell for, this could be seen as the club preventing them being sold. It's similar to a couple of years before we got promoted to the premier when we started to say that we had certain players who were not for sale (like williams), and we were no longer a selling club.

But it could also be seen as a call out to premier clubs to take a look at these players, putting them in the shop window - these are definitely affordable prices to premier teams, probably as back up players, or good substitutions.

i'd much prefer to hear our club say that they are not for sale, especially concerning McBurnie, although VDH is a class player on his day, he's only 26 and is almost at his peak, he will not be losing value any time soon, there is no huge need to sell him on..

They really need to start pumping news about Andre Ayew out there and mention the minimum we would take for him. The more articles they can get out to the media, the more people will take a look at him - lets hope he keeps performing well in the africans cup to make him worth more.

Although there has been speculation about these two it has always been just that. BIrch has said that any exceptional offer for McBurnie would be too good to ignore (and I assume that is true of any player).
However the timing strikes me as very odd, especially as there has been no approach to the club about with MVdH or McBurnie. AFter a week with the new manager we are hearing about players we would have wanted to keep in terms of transfers and price.

The only need to sell VDH is that he is in the last season of his extended contract and doesn’t seem to be interested in a new one.

He will have very little value in the January window and none at the end of the season if he doesn’t sign a new contract.

Good point. in that case we have to offer him a new contact and if he wants to move we will have to let him go. Have we offered him a new contact?

They clearly are for sale though. All our players are for sale at the right price.
I don't think the prices quoted would put clubs off if they are interested.

I agree about the other players like Ayew though. Get their names in the press more.

No way. I think he's going to do really well. Hopefully we can keep hold of Cooper for years to come.

As for the speculation. There has been various press articles about Oli being wanted by Brighton and Sheff Utd, so it's good to get replies out early I think.

.
There has been far too much press about the Ayews crippling us financially and us being desperate to get rid of them, that isn't good for getting the best price ( although most clubs would know this happens to other clubs after premier relegation).

They should be getting good press out there, showing what a good player he can be - reminding people that he really can be a great player. Pump this out enough to the media and eventually there would be interest in him. But if clubs know that we will let him go cheap, we'll get less that he is worth just like with Jordan.

All well and good but there is the none too small matter of his wages.

I can’t see anyone wanting to pay what he is supposed to be on and I suspect that he will happily go on loan and have us make up the difference in wages.

That's true, he would need some premiership interest with the wages wages he's on

I have no faith whatsoever that that they'd spend money on a capable centre half no. That's why VDH must stay.
