Swansea City are at risk of their season dwindling away into mid table obscurity.
Despite their impressive FA Cup victory last weekend, the Swans have struggled for consistency in the league.
Following relegation last season, the club were amongst the favourites for promotion, but it hasn’t worked out well so far.
Graham Potter may use the January window to reassesses his squad and bring in some new talent.
There is a problem with the fringe players, however – many are ageing and are failing to impact the first team, meaning Potter could axe a few this month.
Here, we look at THREE players we think could realistically leave the club by the end of the January transfer window, due to a lack of game time and also to raise money.
Do you agree, or can you see any other players being axed in the month of January? Let us know in the comments below if so.
Jefferson Montero has had a career that promised so much, but he has failed to live up to those expectations, with multiple injury setbacks forcing him to never really get a run in the Swansea City team.
At times, he looks excellent, but he plays too little to make a difference and it is right for Montero to move on this window, and for Swansea to get his wages off their bill.
Wayne Routledge, 34, has been a great servant of the club at the Liberty Stadium, but he has hardly featured this season and is now entering his autumnal years as a player.
His wages will be fairly high and Swansea are embarking on a new chapter. They simply don’t need him anymore.
Bony is a player Swansea can afford to lose and his departure would help them out financially.
The striker is still a great player, but the Swans have Oli McBurnie leading the line at the moment and could do without Bony’s wages holding them back.
If the right move presents itself, expect this to happen.
