Swansea have been told Ferrie Bodde does not know when he will return to the Liberty Stadium by the player's representatives.

The Swans have turned down an undisclosed offer from Bolton for Dutch midfielder Bodde, 27, who failed to show up for pre-season training with the rest of new manager Paulo Sousa's squad.

A spokesman for Bodde told the Swansea Evening Post: "Swansea are using bad words against Ferrie and yet they know exactly why he wasn't at training."

The spokesman added: "We made an appointment with the chairman Huw Jenkins and we thought he would come over to Holland last weekend.

"We spoke to him about that last Friday, but the appointment did not happen and now the chairman is unreachable.

"We wanted to speak with him before Ferrie came back to Swansea, but that did not happen. At the moment I cannot say when he will return."
