Steve Cooper has confirmed that Swansea City have heard nothing from Newcastle United amid speculation over Freddie Woodman’s future.
The goalkeeper is currently on loan from the Premier League side on a deal until the end of the season.
Woodman has been a vital player for the Swans so far this term and has been key to the club’s current challenge to secure automatic promotion to the top flight.
However recent reports have suggested that they could face a battle to keep the stopper.
Reports from Wales Online claim that Woodman is on the shortlist for Arsenal who are keen to sign a new goalkeeper as early as this month.
While it seems that no offer has yet been made it has left Swansea in a nervy position as they await potential bad news.
If Newcastle were to entertain an offer from Mikel Arteta’s side then it would mean that Woodman would have to be recalled from the Liberty Stadium – leaving Cooper’s side somewhat in the lurch.
But when asked about Woodman’s future, the Swansea boss claims that he’s heard nothing from Newcastle to suggest that he could be moving on.

Asked if they’d heard from Newcastle, as quoted by Wales Online, Cooper said: “No. Nothing at all.
“Newcastle have been good through the 18 months he’s been with us in terms of communication.
“But in terms of anything official from Swansea’s point of view we’ve not heard a thing.”
This will surely be a relief to Swansea City fans.
Freddie Woodman has been so good since moving to the Liberty Stadium and to lose him this month would have been a major blow.
If he can stay until the end of the season then it may just be the boost that the club need to see them over the line in the promotion hunt.
