Swansea transfers: Danny Graham hasn’t asked to leave – Huw Jenkins
Swansea transfers: Chairman Huw Jenkins says Danny Graham has not asked to leave amid Norwich and Sunderland interest
Swansea City striker Danny Graham has not handed in a transfer request amid interest from Norwich City and Sunderland, according to Swans chairman Huw Jenkins.
The 27-year-old has scored three goals in 15 Premier League appearances for the Welsh outfit this season, with five of those coming from the bench.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has preferred Spanish sensation Michu to lead his front-line this term, prompting speculation Graham could leave.
The former England Under 20 international has been linked with a move to the Black Cats and Norwich City, but contrary to reports, Jenkins says that Graham has not asked to quit the club.
“At the moment there is no substance to this whatsoever,” said Jenkins.
On Monday, Laudrup also revealed Graham has not spoken to the Swans boss about his desire to leave the club.
“If he comes and says he wants to leave and there’s a very good offer we’ll have to look into it,” said Laudrup.
“[But] it could easily happen that we have exactly the same squad in February as we have now.”
He added: “We have had some offers for him. [But] I said to you already in December that I want to talk to the players not playing regularly, I’ve done that.”
