Other project’s inclusive of adding and finishing the two training grounds, over seas scouting network remain key investment projects in which the American’s investment will fund. Two more signings ready for January being spoken too now.”

“Phil” sent in this Rumour From Gower on: 28/10/2014
“Gomis highly thought of at the club and have high hopes of playing both with Bony once other departments of the First team and squad are strengthened. Gary Monk discussed three further signings two of which were delayed by the club due to resources being used on other club projects & priorities. Gomis had 4 million signing on fee paid over two season’s – the end of this one and next season. Competitive basic salary which is doubled on goals scored and where the Swans finish in the league. William’s highest salary earner at the club. Americans still looking at our club but still the same issues as previously mentioned! Monk highly thought of just having reins pulled back regarding first team player investment.”

“phil” sent in this Rumour From Gower on: 06/08/2014
“swans have no budget for any new players and have to move players on to bring in new players! club had to play catch up in getting Landore & Fairwood up and running (which has been slowed down)! stadium expansion is way off. Laudrup and his signings very costly to our club. Expect possible loan signings and the Argentinian centre back from Napoli to arrive. Low on 1st team squad numbers for now but other projects have been costly and prioritised to move the club forward and play catch up! This is reality but will get better as long as we get through to a fifth season in the premier league.”

Club working hard to rectify”
