David Ngog was edging closer to the Reebok exit door last night after Swansea City revived their interest in the French striker.

Overnight reports had linked Ngog with a move back to France with Evian – but sources in South Wales claim Swans boss Michael Laudrup is ready to launch a late attempt to land the player he tried to sign in the last transfer window.

Swansea shelved their interest in September after discussing personal terms with the former Liverpool man on deadline day.

Ngog has since held out for a move back to the Premier League despite interest from two Turkish clubs and may now be willing to reduce his demands – which have proved an obstacle to a handful of reported suitors – to make the deal happen.

That would free up cash for Dougie Freedman to ward off the advances of Nottingham Forest for his number one strike target Danny Graham, who is available on loan from Sunderland until the end of the season.

Wanderers desperately need a boost after Saturday’s 7-1 pummelling at Reading and have lodged a bid for the 28-year-old Tynesider, who has been on loan at Hull City.

High-flying Forest firmed up their interest yesterday with a substantial offer and now look favourites for his signature, with Leeds United and Middlesbrough both stepping away after registering early interest.

That Wanderers were able to match Sunderland’s requests indicates funds are being released for Freedman to bolster his squad ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup fourth round tie with Cardiff City.

Links with Crystal Palace defender Danny Gabbidon have been rubbished from within the club but Freedman does have designs on two new defenders before the close of business next Friday.

Much could now depend on whether Ngog can agree a deal elsewhere – but the fact an offer is now expected from the English top flight has raised expectations that one of the squad’s biggest earners could be moved on.

The 24-year-old has scored three goals in his last four games but has endured a largely miserable time since relegation to the Championship.

He indicated in an interview last summer that he would be open to a return to France, with Bordeaux linked heavily in the French press at the time.

Ngog’s camp have made no secret that he would relish a chance to play in the Premier League again, however, and with Swansea currently missing star striker Michu through injury, Laudrup has identified him as an affordable option.

Wanderers would request only a nominal fee for Ngog, who is out of contract in the summer, meaning a heavy hit on the £4million Owen Coyle paid Liverpool for his services in the summer of 2010, making him the joint-fifth most expensive signing in the club’s history.

Ha ha, biggest load of bollocks ever.

Of course an established Premier League side is going to turn to David Ngog to solve their goals problem. What's his record in the Championship...about 8 goals in 18 months?

Please lock the thread, this is a non-starter.

"Freedman does have designs on two new defenders before the close of business next Friday"

At last a bit of common sense but I can't imagine who they might be and is does seem to put the kibosh on White and/or Bolger getting a shot for now.

The downside of the article re Ngog moving on is that they are speculating he "may now be willing to reduce his demands – which have proved an obstacle to a handful of reported suitors – to make the deal happen."

I wouldn't be banking on that happening seeing as he has already refused to do so on previous occasions.

Laudrup needs some new scouts if Ngog is the best they have come back to him with.

Freedman on David Ngog talks with Swansea: "The two chairmen are talking to see what they can do."

"It's going to be very difficult to think he would be here on the Monday morning."

Essentially, we are now a team with ONE fit striker... one who never plays.

Bet dougie actually has a hard-on thinking that he can now 'contain' teams by having virtually no attacking players on the field whatsoever...

Of course it's going to be very difficult  :facepalm:

Maybe we should be recalling Sordell back.

True, but he wont.

Even if he does, he wont play him. Il be honest, If I was Sordel, Id tell freedman to go fuck himself.

Why should Sordell have any ill feeling towards Freedman?

He looks like a player that requires careful man-management.

He has the potential clearly, Freedman could have brought it out of him, instead chose to fuck him off to anyone who would have him and publicly slate him.

Doubt he actually WANTS to play for us again.

I'm not saying you're wrong but when and where did he slate him?

I think the Swansea Chairman knows full well that we are desperate to get our wage bill down, and I can't imagine him wanting to pay Ngog £32k a week so I reckon we haven't got a negotiating position. Ngog will probably do a Mears and maintain his demands which could kill the deal.
In fact everyone knows we're skint and they aren't about to do us any favours.
If Ngog is leaving, I imagine that the club will have to fork out a fair bit to get rid - never mind get a transfer fee to boost the coffers.

On another note:
A few people are now using Ngog's possible departure as a reason to suggest that we would be short of strikers - which is a bit weird as for many Ngog has been seen as "surplus to requirements" for a long time now. I don't see the point of spending any money made available on replacing him when there are bigger priorities to be addressed. Would the same argument be made if we found a buyer for Sordell?

I hadn't realised that the deal for N'gog was for a loan deal.

Loan which we subsidise part of his wages I expect. Move for free in the summer.

SO..

we have 2 strikers, soon to be one on our books and we are THAT fucking poor, we give one away for free? just to free up what is (in football terms) a megre amount of money?

Id rather have him play out the rest of his contract if im honest.

Wanderers confirm talks with Swansea City over David Ngog loan move

Wanderers have confirmed they are in early talks with Swansea City over the possible sale of David Ngog.

The French striker was at Euxton this afternoon but chairman Phil Gartside is currently discussing a deal with the Swans that would see him loaned to the Premier League club for the rest of the season.

Dougie Freedman is not counting his chickens that the move – which would potentially free up cash for his own signings – will be completed.

But the Scot is facing up to the fact that he may be down to just one senior striker, Craig Davies, if negotiations gather any momentum in the next few hours.

“Swansea have enquired about his availability,” confirmed the Whites boss this afternoon. “The chairman is discussing the possibility right now.

“Where the deal is at I can’t say right now because the call only came in last night but we have discussed with David the possibility.

“But again, it’s possibilities. I have been here too many times – both incoming and outgoing – to regard it as anything else but talk.”

We're getting £20,000 plus off the wage bill and possibly a small fee to put towards one or two players who will (hopefully) improve us. I can't believe anybody could be against this move, N'gogs offered next to nothing for 3 seasons, he's had his chance and earned a massive amount of money. We're so desperate to get rid so we can reinvest in the squad, let's see what Dougie does with it before criticising.

Still not clear.
Sale or loan or loan then sale?

Either way Dougie doesn't sound too confident it will happen.
