Steve Cooper’s transfer admission and the reality now facing Swansea City

Steve Cooper admits Swansea City could lose more key players this summer as they continue to adjust to life in the Championship.

The Swans are set to enter their fourth successive campaign in the second tier and will no longer receive parachute payments following their relegation from the Premier League in 2018.

Andre Ayew – top scorer in both seasons under Cooper to date – recently departed while Marc Guehi, Freddie Woodman and Conor Hourihane also exited after loan spells in south Wales.

But Cooper says Swansea could yet have to offload more of their key assets in a bid to ensure they can be sustainable as a club.

“That’s always the case. We have got some good young players, we have some players whose contracts are up in a year, so there’s always that chance,” explained the head coach.

“I would hope not for the football club but is it possible? Anything’s possible of course it is.”

Swansea have already recruited Kyle Joseph, Joel Piroe and Liam Walsh this summer.

They remain eager to sign an additional striker while defensive cover for Connor Roberts is also being explored.

And Cooper says the Swans need to bolster their squad in the coming weeks so they can be competitive in the Championship.

When asked if more work needs to be done in the transfer market, the 41-year-old responded: “I think so personally. Sometimes it’s easier said than done for a number of reasons but I think that not only did we lose some good players, we lost established players as well.

“It’s fine to lose one or two but you have got to be careful you don’t, one extreme to the other is the wrong term, but it’s got to be a balance.

“Any manager would always say I want more so I am no different to anybody else.

“But in terms of anything imminent or in the pipeline, I haven’t heard anything from the club.”

The summer transfer window closes at 11pm on Tuesday, August 31.
