Before this weekend’s matches, reports from France quoted people close to Bafetimbi Gomis, saying he was unhappy because promises hadn’t been kept at Swansea and that clubs including Newcastle, Arsenal and Crystal Palace had made initial transfer contact.
After playing in Swansea’s trouncing by Chelsea, the striker has now spoken about the situation himself and says he is considering whether to leave Wales after only five months at the club.
Speaking to Canal+, Bafetimbi Gomis says that the heart of the matter is that Swansea promised him regular football but he only started four Premier League matches before Wilfried Bony left for Manchester City;
“When (Wilfried) Bony was here, it was planned that I should play a certain number of games but that wasn’t the case.
“Today I now ask myself many questions and I have to think.”
“I have been approached by clubs and I’m not sure what will happen, leaving? Maybe.
“I have ambition and I need to reflect because what was agreed wasn’t respected.”
Gomis has now started ten games, plus used as a regular sub, in total for the Swans and scored four goals.
No doubt until something happens, or we get to the end of the transfer window, speculation will continue as to a possible swap deal including Papiss Cisse going the other way.
