Swansea chief slams Liverpool over striker talks

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has revealed his disappointment at Liverpool’s actions towards striker Wilfried Bony.

The Reds have spoken with the Ivory Coast striker who is currently on holiday after his World Cup excursions, and not with the Swansea squad who are in America.

Luis Suarez appears certain to be on his way to Barcelona and so former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers is making plans to replace the banned Uruguayan.

When Rodgers left south Wales he claimed he wouldn’t swoop for any of his former Swansea stars but Bony is set to become the second Swans player to move to Anfield, with left back Ben Davies also on Rodgers’ radar.

Jenkins claims Liverpool have gone behind the club’s back to talk to Bony and that no bid has been made for their main man.

“I was very surprised to hear and disappointed to hear that Liverpool had gone down that route and were talking to the player behind my club’s back,” Jenkins told the Daily Mail.

“I’m disappointed that Liverpool are acting in that manner.

“No official approach has been made to me or our football club.’
