The Premier League new boys agreed deals to sign Halliche on loan
from Fulham and French midfielder Situ on transfer deadline day.
However, Swansea have yet to find out if FIFA have officially
sanctioned the deals leaving both players in limbo. Swansea have
not given up hope that the pair could still be available to make
their debuts against West Brom this weekend but chairman Huw
Jenkins revealed he is growing increasingly frustrated at the
situation. “We are hoping to get some information on the two
signings very soon,” Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.
“This situation is not ideal, and we just want to know one way or
the other now. “This is an issue that we’ve been discussing for a
long time – the fact that in some cases, like the Fulham transfer,
we get discriminated against. “When we are trying to complete deals
for players, we have to go through additional processes that other
clubs in our league do not because any transfer between England and
Wales is viewed as an international transfer.”
