Swansea defender Izzy Iriekpen has withdrawn his transfer request.

He handed in a request for a transfer last month purely for ”footballing reasons” after a spell on a substitutes bench. At the time he said he felt he had to be starting games.

He’s started the last few games however and Jackett’s departure could well get him back in the club’s first team plans when a new manager is brought in.

His contract expires this Summer but the former West Ham centre back is keen to stay according to our official site.
