Russell Martin issues Swansea City transfer warning amid off-field developments



Russell Martin has reiterated that he wants a busy January transfer window at Swansea City, but he admitted the current situation could impact what business gets done.

It was revealed in the past few days that clubs in Wales would have to play behind closed doors, something that seriously hurt clubs financially who had to do so over a lengthy period in the previous campaign.

More importantly, with Martin hoping to do plenty of deals, in terms of incomings and outgoings, players having Covid-19 could influence whether clubs want to sell in the New Year.

Therefore, speaking to Wales Online, Martin made it clear that the current situation is not ideal for the Swans.

We have a list of targets in certain positions that we are working hard on to ensure they are the right fit for us. We need to see how they fit into the financial structure. We aren’t going to sign loads of players with the amount of players we have already. There will have to bee a bit of business both ways.

It could be a very busy January for us or after the news that has just come out it could be very quiet. We had planned for quite a busy one.”

The verdict

You have to appreciate the honesty from Martin here because it’s clearly going to have a bearing on what clubs can do next month.

With the current guidelines, it benefits having a larger squad, so that could make Swansea’s plans of bringing a few in a lot harder, especially as they need to shift players on as well.

So, it’s something to monitor but it’s clear that Martin and the recruitment team are going to have a very busy January as they look to reshape the squad.
