Swansea boss Monk reluctant to lose Palace target Gomis

Swansea City boss Garry Monk insists he doesn't want to lose Bafetimbi Gomis.

The Daily Mail says Crystal Palace have made an opening offer of around £6million for Gomis.

Gomis, 29, joined Swansea for free on a four-year deal in June 2014.

Monk said: "The links and speculation I can't stop, but Bafe's [Gomis] a Swansea City player.

"He's a great professional, a good guy and a top, top, player.

"Obviously trying to give him game time has been difficult this season with Wilfried Bony doing so well in that lone striker role.

"It can be frustrating for players, but Bafe's been brilliant. He's not shown that at all in training and he's worked extremely hard.

"I'll be looking to play Bafe very much in this coming period and for him to be wearing that shirt, then it's his to lose."
