Swans still keen on Boro duo

Premier League new boys Swansea have seen bids rejected for the

strike pair this summer as they look to bolster their attacking

options. Emnes enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Swansea last

season and manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to lure him back to the

Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis. Despite Middlesbrough

snubbing offers for Emnes and Lita, Jenkins insists the moves are

not dead in the water. Jenkins has called for Swansea fans to be

patient in the transfer market, but he is optimistic of further

additions. “We had initial discussions with Middlesbrough a few

weeks back but the figures quoted were a lot different from what we

think the values are,” Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.

“Things can change in football, and things could change for

Middlesbrough or for us. “All I would say is that at the moment,

Brendan is talking to different people and I am talking to

different people to see what is out there.”
