Swans rule out striker exit

04 September 2006 03:51
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has warned League One rivals Gillingham a fresh attempt to sign striker Adebayo Akinfenwa would not be well received. Gills boss Ronnie Jepson admitted that he had made an approach to take the Swans' hitman to the Priestfield Stadium ahead of last Thursday's transfer window deadline. Having failed on that occasion it now looks like he will make a new bid to sign Akinfenwa on a temporary basis when the loan window opens later this week. However Jenkins said: "We had a couple of enquiries about Akinfenwa. "One of them was Gillingham and I spoke to their chairman (Paul Scally) about him. "I think they were just testing the water and we would not be keen for them to make a loan bid. But if something happens then we will have to deal with it. "Bayo has done very well when he has come off the bench and many people probably believe that he is due a starting role. So if anyone did make a bid for him we would not be keen."
