Swansea’s Soriano move stalls

Premier League new boys Swansea had lined up a move for the

25-year-old as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins travelled to Spain to hold talks with

the player’s representatives last weekend, but he has been unable

to strike a deal. It has been suggested Swansea have not been able

to agree terms with Soriano, who finished as top scorer in the

Spanish Segunda Division last season, notching 32 times for Barca’s

B side. “Nothing has been concluded,” Jenkins told the South Wales

Evening Post. “We were prepared to offer the player an opportunity

to join our squad in our first season in the Premier League, but we

were not happy with the terms of the deal.”
