It’s unlikely that Swansea City will complete the signing of Thomas Henry this summer as the Leuven striker will be out of their price range.
Understand Swansea City do indeed hold an interest in Leuven striker Thomas Henry, but sounds like he may well be beyond their price range this summer #Swans

Bringing in a new number nine is going to be a priority for Steve Cooper in the window and Henry had emerged as a potential target for the Welsh side.
With the 26-year-old having hit 21 goals in the Belgian top-flight last season, securing his signature would be something of a coup for the Swans.
However, reporter Tom Coleman has cooled talk that Henry could arrive in Wales, as whilst he revealed he is a player that the recruitment team have identified, he also explained that he could cost too much for the club.
21 things every Swansea City fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?
As you would expect, this was not the news that the Swansea fans wanted to hear, with many already unhappy that the owners haven’t invested enough in recent windows.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter to the news…
Owners not investing imagine my shock https://t.co/gBpFd5cCLC

How on earth is Steve Cooper meant to get us promoted when the Owners refuse to back him financially?

Given that his market value has increased today to £4.5m, this is no real surprise to me. Only way we could afford him is to pay in instalments or to offer some sort of lucrative sell on fee percentage https://t.co/mvtKDuE6ia

unless it’s a stupidly high fee, can’t see Cooper doing a third season with nothing to work with https://t.co/hw0wKe3TBh
