Rangel wants out of Swansea for Premiership berth

Angel Rangel has informed Swansea he wants to leave the club to make the move to the Premier League. New-boys Blackpool have tabled an offer for highly-rated full-back Rangel with Wigan waiting in the wings for the 27 year old.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins admits the Spaniard is keen to move on to try his luck in England's top flight.

"We're still talking through Blackpool's offer at the moment," Jenkins told the South Wales Echo. "It hasn't been accepted or rejected, we're just discussing it.

"Myself and Brendan (Rodgers) have had a meeting with Rangel and have got his views on where he sees himself at the club and his future and we've discussed the options which are staying at the club, looking at a new proposal from us or - if we did agree a fee with Blackpool - accepting the bid.

"But I think Rangel feels at the moment because of his age and where he's at in his career having been at the club a few years, he feels there's an opportunity to take advantage of.

"That's obviously clear and has come over quite strongly."

Jenkins added: "The difficulty is that until we get the right offer on the table which is suitable for us, as with any player, he remains our player and that's as simple as that.

"It's up to Blackpool if they want to pursue the likelihood of signing Angel and to keep negotiations going.

"They're not a million miles away, but we are still talking to the player and his representatives."
