Swansea have revealed that four key players will not be offered new contracts at the end of the season. Former Bolton striker David Ngog is one of them. He has been at Swansea since the January transfer window after leaving Bolton. However, he has found little game time under Michael Laudrup and under current manager Gary Monk. After managing to secure another season of Premier league football, the club have decided to part ways with those players in order to strengthen the squad in the summer.
Monk was confirmed as the manager of Swansea after signing a three-year contract. He helped the club stay in the division in the final few months of the season. Laudrup was sacked just a few weeks into the 2014 calendar after a run of poor results and dressing room bust up. Villarreal midfielder Jonathan de Guzman, who has been on loan at the club, is also one of the players who is set to leave the club. However, after he has impressed in his time at Swansea, club chairman Jenkins has revealed that they will be looking to bring him back on the third spell.
Former Reading striker Leroy Lita is also one of the players to be released by the club. Since his move for £ 1.25 million from Middlesbrough in 2011, the striker has struggled for form.
“We will talk to his club and agent to see what his thoughts are – as we did last summer,” said the club chairman about the hopes of signing de Guzman in the summer. Swansea are set to go into the new campaign with a lot of funds at their disposal since the new Premier league deal has benefited clubs to the tune of more than £ 30 million. Swansea are expected to spend prudently in the summer.
