Swansea's Bafetimbi Gomis airs frustration and says he could leave

Bafetimbi Gomis for St Etienne

Bafetimbi Gomis has aired his frustration at life on the bench at Swansea City and revealed that interest has been shown in his services.

Bafetimbi Gomis has told Canal+ that he could be the next high-profile figure to leave Swansea City during the January transfer window.

The Swans have already parted with Wilfried Bony, with the Ivorian striker linking up with Premier League rivals Manchester City.

His departure would be expected to open up opportunities for Gomis, with the France international having spent much of the season filling back-up duties.

He has, however, revealed that broken promises in South Wales have led him to question his future.

The 29-year-old, who arrived as a free agent last summer, is disappointed with his lack of playing time and says interest in his services has been shown, with the Daily Telegraph among those to have suggested that Crystal Palace are plotting an approach.

Gomis told Canal+: “I have been approached by clubs. For the moment I am concentrating on Swansea. Me leaving? It is possible.

"When Bony was here, it was also planned that I should play a certain number of games...that wasn't the case.

"Today, I ask myself many questions. I need time to think, because [promises weren't kept]. At my age, it's very difficult to accept to spend my time on the bench".

Gomis has been restricted to just six Premier League starts this season.

He has managed only one goal during those outings, with three more arriving in four League and FA Cup appearances.

Garry Monk has expressed a desire to keep Gomis, on Wales Online, but a formal approach would test his resolve.
