Swansea confident keeping Wigan away from major players

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is confident of keeping his best players.

Former Swans boss Roberto Martinez wants Jason Scotland and Angel Rangel at Wigan Athletic, but Jenkins told the Wigan Evening Post: "I am honestly not worried, because they are all securely under contract - so the prospect of that doesn't bother me at all.

"There is nothing at all in any of the speculation. Every single one of our players is under contract, and there has been no conversation between myself and Wigan about players.

"We start back in pre-season training this week, and we'll be making every effort to strengthen the squad, not weaken it. I have only got one loyalty - to our club - and I will try to make sure every player our new manager wants to keep at this club will stay.

"I am more interested in our own manager getting our squad ready for the coming season, and that's what we're fully concentrating on."
