Report outlines Swansea’s stance over Gomis and Newcastle

Bafetimbi Gomis v Brest

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Bafetimbi Gomis from Swansea City in the January transfer window.

Swansea City are unlikely to sell Bafetimbi Gomis to Newcastle United in the January transfer window, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

According to a recent report in The Daily Mail, Newcastle are interested in signing the striker this month. It has been reported that the Magpies are ready to make a £7 million move for the 30-year-old Frenchman.

However, Swansea are unlikely to sell Gomis to Newcastle as both the teams are fighting against relegation, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

“But though Swansea may be prepared to sell the former French international this month, it is thought they would be reluctant to do more business with one of their relegation rivals,” states the report.

Newcastle signed Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea last week, and the England international midfielder made a strong debut for them (against West Ham United) at the weekend.

Perhaps the Swans have realised that selling good players like Shelvey and Gomis to Newcastle is going to have an adverse affect on their chances of retaining their Premier League status for next season.

Gomis has scored five goals and created 13 chances in 20 Premier League appearances so far this campaign. During the 2014-15 season, the former Lyon man scored seven goals and created 13 chances in 31 league matches for the Swans.
