Graham: I rejected QPR, West Brom for Swansea move

Swansea City striker Danny Graham says he rejected rival Premier League offers to move to Liberty stadium.

Swansea City striker Danny Graham says he rejected rival Premier League offers to move to Liberty stadium.

The 25-year-old former Watford striker signed for the Swans for a £3.5m fee and insisted his heart was set on a move to the Liberty Stadium as soon as he heard Rodgers’ plans for the club.

“When I spoke to Brendan he came across as a really enthusiastic manager,” Graham told talkSPORT. “[He is] driven and wants to do well similar to myself as a player. I want to achieve goals and do well in the Premier League.

"Obviously the style of play was massive. I’ve been playing against them for a few years now and it’s something that attracted me to Swansea.

“I met West Brom, I met QPR – it could have been quite easy for me to go to QPR I could have stayed where I was living. I spoke to West Brom and liked what I heard but not as much as Swansea. From the moment I met Brendan to leaving the meeting I knew my heart was set on Swansea City.”
