Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is pleased with the club’s business after landing Renato Sanches, Wilfried Bony and Sam Clucas late in the window.
“It was a very difficult window,” he told the club’s website. “We lost our two top goalscorers (Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson) from last season and when that happened it was always going to be difficult to turn things around and maintain the same levels.
“The fee we received for Gylfi probably made things doubly difficult for us in some ways to try and do the right deals. But I think we have done well with what we’ve achieved in the time we’ve had.
“We probably could have done a bit more in this window, but it was important that we didn’t overstretch ourselves as a club by bringing in players that were being well over-valued.”
Within the two windows Paul has been with us the squad has changed a lot with four coming in last January (Martin Olsson, Jordan Ayew, Luciano Narsingh and Tom Carroll) and six in this window. That’s big changes.
“But as a club we are in a good, healthy financial position again. Then if we need one or two more players to strengthen again in January, there will also probably be better options available.’’
Swansea lost Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente to Everton and Tottenham during the summer, bringing in some £60million from the two men who contributed 53% of the club’s top-lfight goals last term.
Jack Cork was also sold to Burnley, but the likes of Roque Mesa, Tammy Abraham, Sam Clucas, Renato Sanches and Wilfried Bony all came through the arrivals door at the Liberty Stadium.
