Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins discusses summer transfer plans

It looks as though a quiet summer is planned at the Liberty Stadium

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has been talking about the club's transfer plans in the summer, suggesting there won't be that many signings at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans are on course for their best season in the Premier League under Garry Monk, and are on course to get a record points total in the division.

But this season has seen the loss of a major asset in the form of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City, and according to the South Wales Evening Post, that could be an area that will be addressed in the summer.

Jenkins is quoted, saying: "We can't forget that we made a lot of changes last summer and then we added a few more players to the squad in January.

"There are one or two main things we need, but I think it will be one of the quietest summers we have had in terms of the number of players we have to change around.

"This summer is more about finding players to strengthen one or two positions where we feel we need to improve to make sure we are competitive next season.

"In the modern game you are always looking for forwards or other players who can influence games," he added. "I think you are always looking for something up front, whether that is players who can score goals or create chances, because that is what makes the difference."

Swansea certainly have a good base to build from this season as they look to kick on next term. They have performed very well and not looked out of place competing against the bigger sides in the division - even securing some memorable victories against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United along the way.

It seems that after a lot of changes to personnel on the football pitch, they want a more settled summer in South Wales, with a couple of quality additions for the side to take another stride forward and be even more competitive next season. 

The club is in a pretty sound position to kick on next term if the right decisions are made in the close season.
