Swans reject Bodde bid

Published Add your comment

Swansea have rejected a new offer from Wigan for Dutch midfielder Ferrie Bodde.

The combative 27-year-old, who is nearing full fitness following a knee injury, was the subject of a bid from the Latics a fortnight ago, with Roberto Martinez eager to be reunited with the player he took to the Liberty Stadium two years ago.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's official website: "The terms of the payment have improved, but our stance on Ferrie remains the same and the offer has been rejected."

He added: "Ferrie is edging closer to full fitness and we are all looking forward to seeing him pulling on a Swansea shirt again and bolstering Paulo Sousa's squad."

Bodde was one of Martinez's first signings for Swansea, joining from ADO Den Haag for just £80,000. Martinez has already returned to Swansea to sign striker Jason Scotland and Jordi Gomez, who was on loan with the Welsh club last season.
