Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins wants the future of Manchester City target Scott Sinclair resolved before the transfer window closes.

Swansea want Scott Sinclair future resolved

The winger was left out of the Swans squad for Saturday’s home game with West Ham United and has told the club he will not sign a new contract.

Reports suggested Swansea had accepted a bid from City but Jenkins said a deal had not been reached.

“We haven’t actually agreed any deal with Man City at the moment,” he said.

“I would have thought if they really wanted to sign Scott Sinclair they would have dealt with it a little bit better than they have. But that’s their business.

“But it has dragged on too long and I hope one way or another it will be concluded the next couple of days.”

Jenkins said manager Michael Laudrup is hoping to further strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes on Friday.

Swansea have brought in Spaniards Chico and Michu, the latter scoring three times in his first two games, as well as Dutchman Jonathan de Guzman and South Korean Ki Sung-Yeung this summer, while midfielder Joe Allen left to join former boss Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

“Hopefully, over the next few days, we’ll get a couple of more signings in and we can put the transfer window behind us at the end of the month,” Jenkins said on Radio Wales Sport.

“Our proposed signing of a couple of players is not dependent on Scott’s transfer out. I think it’s more about numbers and making sure we have the right number in the squad.”

Another player who could leave Swansea during the coming days is defender Garry Monk, who has been linked with a move to Bristol City.

Jenkins confirmed he and manager Laudrup had held talks with Monk but insisted the former Southampton player would not be forced to leave the club.

“One of the things we’ve had over the years is a fantastic nucleus of players that have stayed with us and Garry’s been part of that,” Jenkins said.

“We’ve talked things through, myself and the manager with Garry, and Garry’s main aim is to try and play football.

“That’s what he wants and we’ll see what happens over the next few days.

“In no way is he ever going to be pushed out of our football club. He’s part and parcel of it.

“But his wishes are taken into account and whatever decision we make over the next few days, and Garry decides to make, we’ll work together on it.”

Jenkins denied speculation that Monk moving to Bristol City would see winger Albert Adomah moving in the opposite direction.

The Swansea chairman also said there was no truth in rumours the club had agreed a fee with Crewe for midfielder Ashley Westwood.
