Thomas Henry and Swansea City back in talks
Thursday, 24th Jun 2021 12:02 by David Cornish

As we reported two weeks ago it seems Thomas Henry is on the verge of leaving OH Leuven. The Belgian side have excluded him from their recent friendlies, and the manager has stated he believes he will leave this summer. The latest news is he is speaking with Swansea City to attempt to tie up a deal. This is being reported in Belgium by Het Nieuwsblad and we have the story in this article.

Stay tuned for the latest on Swansea City transfers this season, we include everything we can to cover all the angles to bring you the best information we can.

Original report -
The swans are in negotiations with Joel Piroe at PSV to complete the paperwork on a three year deal this afternoon, however, having already signed Kyle Joseph it seems they are covering all the angles with Thomas Henry. The Piroe deal will possible take a while to conclude with a fee already agreed between the clubs. Joseph signing was a real coup that many swans fans don’t seem to recognise as it stands, we are pretty sure that won’t take long for that opinion to change.

So, now interest returns to Thomas Henry at OH Leuven, a player who has scored 21 goals this season. His manager Marc Brys has already commented “Thomas Henry is ready for something different. He wants to fulfil his ambitions and at least test his worth at a higher level. He is 26, it’s a bit now or never for him. A healthy ambition, I call it,” It shouldn’t go unnoticed that Brys is not including Henry in any of his pre season plans but also stated “ He wants to go higher, he is keen on the interest but he also wants to see what the premier league can offer”

Personally we don’t see Henry getting a move to the premier league, and if he did by chance it’s unlikely he would feature in any first team. His recent record is good, but before last season he hardly set the world alight in front of goal. He will know that Swansea City could offer premier league football come the end of next season, and if not a successful season would most certainly bring in offers and the usual interest in the exceptional coaching players receive at the club.

The sports story of the day in Het Nieuwsblad

The swans are spreading their wings wide with a variety of targets this summer, and what we all know is it means players will be leaving. Something has to give on the financial front. We know who those players are and we hope the club thinks long and hard before selling on the identity built by Steve Cooper and Mike Marsh over the last two seasons.

On those two the picture is more cloudy today than ever today. It’s hardly worth making a judgement, but what we do know is Swansea City and Andy Scott are forging ahead and getting business done. And it seems as we progress this summer it is to the betterment of the club so it can challenge properly, and not half heartedly in another assault to get back to the premier league.

Encouraging news. The current squad is a defensively solid squad but lacking in inspiration and goalscoring ability especiallynow Ayew has gone. Cooper will argue his teams had to be dour and defensive simply because it was realtively toothless and keeping the goals out was the numvber on priority. He will argue with genuine attacking flare players his methods are not necessarity drab and unispiring.

TH is quite a specimen with a soft touch and good vision from clips.
