SWANSEA City are set to bid farewell to one of their local lads as Garry Monk looks to offload some of his fringe men.Jazz Richards was last night on the brink of completing a permanent move to Fulham in a deal expected to be worth around £500,000.Richards's switch to London will bring to an end a long association with the club where he came through the ranks and was handed a squad number even before he had signed a first professional contract back in 2009.Richards's Swansea debut came...

I think if we do acquire Eder then Garry will be...

KI Sung-Yueng and Wayne Routledge have handed Garry Monk a double boost by declaring themselves fit for the start of pre-season training.Swansea City's players return to action today just five weeks after the 2014-15 campaign came to an end at Crystal Palace.And the good news for Monk is that he will have a near fully-fit squad to work with as preparations begin for the new Premier League season.Routledge is set to take a full part from the outset having missed the final month of last season.The...

SWANSEA City have again been linked with Watford striker Troy Deeney.Hornets skipper Deeney is thought to have been on Swansea's radar for some time, and there are reports that Garry Monk has failed in an £11 million bid.It would be something of a surprise if Swansea were to spend that sort of money on a centre-forward given that Bafetimbi Gomis looks to have established himself as their first-choice frontman ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.But it is clear that Monk remains determined to...
