Swansea City are becoming a selling club, according to former Welsh international Mickey Thomas.

But Swansea City have sold players who just don’t wish to be here – or have strong desires to leave for bigger clubs. They’re not a club to stand in a player’s way if they have wishes to join another club – if the deal is right though of course.

Mickey Thomas told BBC Sport that he believes the Swans are becoming a selling club following the expected departures of Ben Davies and Michel Vorm to Spurs – in exchange for cash and Gylfi Sigurdsson. This adds to the recent departures of Michu and Pablo Hernandez.

The Swans will still be hopeful of keeping star striker and top goalscorer Wilfried Bony – as news on a possible move elsewhere has gone quiet – thankfully.

Thomas said:

‘Now Swansea are becoming a selling club… I don’t think that’s good business, you have to keep your best players on board,’

‘I know they have to work within a budget, have to work sensibly, but if you want to survive in the Premiership you have to keep your best players on board.’


Another thing you have to remember is that most of Laudrup’s signings signed simply to work for the Danish legend. His departure back in February immediately shadowed doubt over some his best signings including Michu, Hernandez and Bony.

Soon after he left, rumours started flying around that Michu had gone AWOL and wanted to follow Laudrup out of the Liberty Stadium exit door.

Unsurprisingly then, the Spaniard recently completed a loan move to Napoli – who the Swans faced twice in last season’s Europa League competition.
