Ki Sung-Yeung Move Looking Unlikely

Two further stories have 'sparked' today from our apparent interest in Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung and they emanate from both his current club and his representatives.

When JF covered the rumour the other day, it was said that even in the initial reports that Swansea were reluctant to sell the midfielder despite him effectively spending all season out on loan with Sunderland last term.

With only a year left on his contract, Ki has been given an extended break this summer following the international action, it's said that Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has not given up on keeping the South Korean, and that manager Garry Monk will be sitting down with the 25 year old shortly after his proper return to pre season to discuss his future and hopefully thrash out a new deal.

Jenkins is quoted in the press as saying.

'We want him to come back after his break and sit down with Garry Monk for a chat. Garry has spoken to him already, but it's important that they have another chat and we will decide on where we go after that. Ideally, we would like to tie Ki up on a long term contract.'

Following that, the player's management team have insisted that he's not for sale and he's not looking for a move, but they did apparently confirm our initial interest.

'We have not heard from Aston Villa about signing Ki. He will return to Swansea.'

The speculated fee of interest has already doubled from the initial 3million and is now being carried as 6million.

Posturing I would think.... 6m for a player with a year left who was loaned out last season.... and Wet Spam reportedly want Delph for 5m. No one really knows so paper talk it is

I will be disapointed if we miss out on Ki tbh, i rate him, great possesion player and not just backwards and sideways good player.

Someone please explain. Reports said we need him to fill our 'holding midfielder' role and all season we have been screaming for an'attacking midfielder'. What exactly is 'role' the midfielders we currently have on the books?

Ki i see as a holding player but he is also a playmaker, i don't see him as the tough tackling DM we need BUT the way he sits and dictates the play/possesion he will help take the pressure off the defence and hlp build attacks

If it is 6m as mentioned - forget it. TBH, I can't see anything happening on this one.

I'd like him but we won't spend money even if it's very little. It's no coincidence that all our signings have been on free
