The Swansea City manager has urged Pratley to forget the speculation that was around a potential move to Forest during the summer and concentrate on what he does best – shine for Swansea City – when the two sides come face to face on Saturday.
Speaking to the Western Mail, Rodgers said
“I don’t think there is any problem. He will go into Saturday’s game just like any other.
“They are a team that reportedly wanted to sign him and I can understand that because he’s got great qualities.
“He is obviously in the last year of his contract and he would be silly not to look at the possibilities, especially at his age.
“But I don’t think anyone could question his commitment to Swansea.
“Darren is a terrific professional. There were some reports a few months ago about him wanting to go there, but I have never been given that impression at all. I have never had that feeling.
“He obviously felt his future was far better here and you can’t argue against that.
“It’s not as if I don’t speak with the player, I talk openly about it with him.
“He wants to be here and he loves being here.”
