Swansea turn down bids from West Ham for goalkeeper and defender

Swansea City have turned down bids from West Ham United for goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Alfie Mawson.

Former Arsenal keeper Fabianski has informed Swansea that he wants to leave the club following their relegation to the Championship, whilst highly rated Mawson was previously a target for the Hammers in January.

Although the amount of both bids have not been disclosed, they are short to be some way short of the valuations that the Welsh club has placed on them, reports The BBC.

Ostersunds FK manager Graham Potter is set to be named as the new Swansea boss after compensation terms with the Swedish club were agreed, and the club are reluctant to make any decisions on their squad for next season until he is in situ.

Fabianski, Swansea supporters’ player of the year has one year left on his current contract, whilst Mawson, who is currently recovering from knee surgery, is expected to command a considerable fee, in line with the going rate for English centre-halves of his calibre.
