It’s been a busy few days for Swansea City, although the focus has been more on what didn’t happen than anything else.

Swansea City ended the transfer window without signing a single player, the only player to arrive was the remembered Morgan Whittaker. Michael Obafemi was the highlight of several matches, and despite several targets appearing on his radar, the Swans were unable to find a replacement.

The signing of the Carlan Grant loan, which looked set to happen at the end of term day, would certainly have softened the blow. But West Bromwich Albion broke the plug in the last minute.

Russell Martin is sure to be disappointed and will likely give his reaction to the past few weeks’ events this morning. He might also have something to say about the shocking interview Jason Levien and Jake Silverstein gave on Thursday night.

The Americans met a Swansea City Supporters’ Trust representative to voice their views at the window and, while admitting their frustration at the lack of revenue, reiterated their commitment to the club amid renewed discontent among supporters.

Levien and Silverstein publicly apologized for chaotic transfer window

Jason Levien and Jake Silverstein have apologized after Swansea City’s disappointing transfer window in January.

Manager Russell Martin was determined to strengthen his squad in the winter transfer window, with striker and right-back top priorities as the Swans looked to boost their Championship play-off chances.

Chief executive Julian Winter said in December that the club were “looking to be proactive in the window” and that they were “working hard to improve the squad and look forward to the second half of the season”.

But the club failed to sign a single player in the 31-day window, despite six leaving Swansea, including Michael Obafemi.

And ahead of Swansea’s return to action against Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon, co-owner Levien and director Silverstein held a Zoom meeting with the club’s Supporters’ Trust to discuss a transfer window that ultimately left the club underdogs. than at Christmas.

Levien, wearing a black Swans jacket during the interview, said: “I think it’s a real disappointment that we weren’t able to close some of the deals we worked on over the phone.

“I think it reflects not a lack of ambition, I think there was a lot of ambition. I think it reflects more, the ineptitude of the execution part, a bit of a bad result that had nothing to do with us and you know, a bit of bad luck.

“But it’s a real disappointment that we’re not doing more for a team that we think are very strong overall but are in need of some signings, so it’s disappointing. I’m sorry to our fans that we couldn’t make it.

“I really think we avoided some mistakes. But we really wanted to strengthen the team and invest in the team. In the end, we were unable to make certain agreements.”
