Swansea City’s talks with Cardiff over the permanent transfer of Striker Warren Feeeny will continue despite the player out until the new year.

Feeney was stretchered off in yesterdays 3-0 win over Southend United after a tackle from Shrimpers defender Lewis Taylor.

Scans on the Ankle ligament damage will be carried out to fully discover the length of the injury layoff for the striker.

The Northern Ireland international has been a success since his arrival on transfer deadline day this summer.

6 goals in all competitions has led Swansea Manager Roberto Martinez hoping to secure a deal for the player.

Back in October a fee was agreed with Cardiff for the Striker but the players future is less than certain as both clubs try and iron out the deal.

Martinez has signalled his intent regarding the players permanent move from Ninian Park and even injury concerns will not deter the Spaniard from securing his man

He Told :
The Western Mail

‘We are trying to make it permanent and hopefully over the next few days we will know where we are – the injury will have no bearing on whether we sign him at all.’

Since day one Warren said he has wanted to stay and we have said the same and you can see that chemistry between Warren and Swansea City.”


Feeney has still 2 and 1/2 years to run on his contract at Ninian Park and the player insists he is enjoying his time at the club

He Told :
The Western Mail

‘”The fans have been great with me and it`s a good squad and I`m enjoying my football.

Anything permanent will be up to the clubs.


As the transfer window reopens on the 1st of January Roberto Martinez will look to secure feeney in the January sales.
