Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins does not know if manager Paulo Sousa will opt to keep Lee Trundle in the January transfer window.

The 33-year-old striker, a club legend after a previous spell in south Wales, returned to the Swans in August on loan from Bristol City and a deal is in place to make the move permanent next month, but with Trundle having failed to win a starting spot at the Liberty Stadium, Jenkins is unsure if the switch will be completed.

"A deal was in place when we brought Lee back which said Bristol City could call him back in January or we could keep him. It is something that will be sorted out next month. Paulo has to make his decision and then we will go from there," Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.

He added: "It's been difficult for Lee. The way we play and the shape we play, plus the fact we have been on such a good run, has probably hampered Lee's progress.

"We tend to revert to two up front when we are behind in games and, as it stands, Lee has been unlucky since he came back. But I think he understands the position we are in."
