Glimmer Of Hope In Pursuit Of Liverpool Winger?

Newspaper reports over the weekend suggested that the Swans championship rivals were about to make a bid for the player who had such a big impact on loan at Swansea last season.   It formed part of a big spending fee for Nottingham Forest that now – according to more reports – includes Cardiff midfielder Peter Whittingham.

But the Swans have heard no confirmation of the proposed deal for Anderson although they do concede that they are unlikely to do although they do believe that the move will not come down to money and it may be about what Paul wants for his career giving just a chink of light in the hope that he may return to the Liberty Stadium.

Speaking in the Evening Post, the Swans chairman said "We have heard stories about Paul Anderson and an apparent bid for him, but until Liverpool and Paul clarify the situation we will have to wait and see

"We have not had any confirmation from Liverpool of any bid from Forest, and we wouldn't expect too – that is between the two clubs.

"We are obviously keen on Paul because he made a considerable impact last season. But it is very much in the balance and we will have to wait until Liverpool get in contact with us."

He added: "Paul will take his time to think about his situation.

"Perhaps Liverpool will want to keep him. They may want to sell him or send him out on loan again to get some experience and games under his belt.

"I have seen what figure has been put around – £750,000 is a lot of money but Roberto is very keen to keep him with us. But it's not going to come down to money. I think this is about which path Paul would like to take in his career."
