Swansea Chairman: No Truth In Graham Story

It would appear we're in for a bit of a song and dance over the protracted transfer of Danny Graham to Sunderland...

After reports came out last night via Sky Sports and the Press Association that Danny Graham had requested to leave the Swansea City and move closer to his home in the North East, the club have moved quickly to deny that this is the case.

Speaking to BBC Wales last night, Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins told the radio station;

At the moment there is no substance to this whatsoever.

There's two ways to take this really. Swansea have no immediate need to sell, and rumours that their ideal replacement for him, Kenwyne Jones, is headed to Turkey rather than the South Wales are gathering pace.

There's also the fact that we're playing Swansea tonight and this is all seen as a way of unsettling Graham on the eve of a big game.

What appears to be most likely is that Graham will lineup for Swansea tonight before a final attempt to secure his signature is made in the two days following prior to the window shutting.

The whole deal is very reminicent of the Steven Fletcher transfer in the summer when Jez Moxey was adamant that his star man would not be leaving Wolves, and we eventually got our man there. Don't be too put off by Jenkins' comments just yet.
