Swans hope to seal Situ deal

The 19-year-old had accepted a two-year contract to join the
Premier League club in the summer after a fee of £250,000 had
been agreed. However, FIFA refused to grant international clearance
after not all of the paperwork was completed before the transfer
window shut. Rodgers has remained keen to add Situ to his squad and
is confident the centre-half will arrive at the Liberty Stadium in
the New Year. “Darnel is not ready to come straight into the first
team, but he is a good kid who is hungry to do well,” said Rodgers
in the South Wales Evening Post. “Hopefully we can close that deal
in January and he will be a development player for us.” The Swans
have enjoyed a solid start to life in the top flight and Rodgers is
keen to build on the success with further signings next month. He
added: “There is some money, but not lots of money. We are not a
club with millions and millions of pounds, but there will be
something available.”
