Man City risk Swansea row over 'new Giggs' capture

Swansea City are furious with Manchester City over their move for 15 year-old Welsh kid Emyr Huws.

The People says Huws, 15, is training with the Eastlands club even though he is on Swansea's books and the Welsh side claim he is being privately educated at a Yorkshire boarding school, with Manchester City paying the fees.

If Huws signs for City, Swansea could demand as much as £500,000 in compensation and are ready to go to FIFA if they are not satisfied with the settlement for a midfielder rated the best young Welsh footballer since Ryan Giggs.

A Swansea official said last night: "We would ideally like the player to come back to us but that's not going to happen. However, there will have to be proper compensation."
