The transfer situation at Swansea is positive and this is why - Big signing coming in ?

This month the swans have taken a few hits on their loan investments as January moves forwards. More players to go and more players in, that’s positive - and we simply have to trust the model that has gone before is the model for moving on, positively. Swans latest transfer news
Most Swans supporters will, admit that the biggest loss from the three loan players this month was Morgan Gibbs-White, his return to Wolves was a hammer blow for Steve a Cooper. The return of Kasey Palmer to Bristol City was a neither here nor there, it was clear his efforts initially were becoming an average performance overall, Swansea won’t miss him. In the case of Viktor Gyökeres he simply didn’t fit in with the Swansea way as it is today, he was a failure, come on let’s be ruthless here, you, didn’t cry any tears on his leaving.
Let’s have a look at why Max Watters didn’t join Swansea City
Max Watters, bid on the table, ready for Crawley to accept, based on Watters scoring record over a few months. It was five hundred thousand pounds. It’s called due diligence when a club does as much work on a player off the pitch as they do on the pitch, that’s a proper club working properly. Swansea have a very good record in this department, it stretches back to the days when Huw Jenkins thought he was the new wheeler dealer in football recruitment. He learned that as he went along, Ferrie Bodde is an example, nowadays it’s different. Gambling, net worth, living conditions, reliability, contacts, family, friends, influences, previous behaviour, weakness, employment worth, true value, all go towards the due diligence Swansea City do today Andy Scott’s job is not just unearthing gems, it’s more than that. It’s just the start when a player comes to notice. That’s why Max Watters didn’t come to Swansea, because if the swans desperately wanted him, he wouldn’t be at Cardiff today.
That’s certainly true. Due diligence is key.
What’s going on with players going out ?
The situation with Conor Hourihane and Jordan Morris wont look any different until Tuesday or Wednesday as Swansea find themselves once again being the victim of their own success in scouting and development. Neil Warnock now at Middlesboro is following suit as did Cardiff by becoming interested in a player he hardly knows - but what he does know is that if Swansea City are interested he may as well follow suit. Conor Hourihane is now within numerous clubs sites and if Cooper wants him he cant hang around another week.
Morris’ representative, Lyle Yorks has already stated Jordan wants a move to Europe, he cited numerous premier league sides, maybe a flight of fancy, but that is what agents do. If our sources are correct Jordan Morris will be a swans player very soon.
However, there is something else simmering under the surface and we do know its big. What that is will no doubt become clear this month, but fair play to Swansea City sources, nothing is being said, tight lipped is the order of the day. Frustrating yes, but hopefully this tact will avoid some of the lesser skilled clubs getting their noses in to the pie.Cooper has remained very cute on this, never giving anything away and this season he has learned much regards his trade. Long may that continue.
