Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has revealed an agreement is in place to stop newly-appointed Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers signing players from his former club for 12 months.
“We have got some protection on Brendan coming back for our players in the initial period, which I think is the right thing,” Jenkins told Talksport. “He has got a timescale to assess things there and that is going to take him a while, so I’ve no worries there.”
Jenkins admitted disappointment at losing Rodgers, who guided the Swans to the Premier League and then to 11th in the top flight last term. “We are obviously very, very disappointed that we lost Brendan but things move on,” he said. “When we had Brendan working with us we wanted him for some years to come, but everyone has ambition and sometimes that ambition has to be realized.”
