Valencia and Swansea – agent speaks out


bsilkWest Ham have had no approaches and will not be selling Enner Valencia to Swansea.

A morning report has been entirely rubbished by the Ecuadorian international’s joint agent Barry Silkman to ClaretandHugh within the last few minutes (Sun).

The story appeared in the Sun this morning but Silkman – talking to us – said: “It’s absolute nonsense. Total rubbish. There’s nothing in that at all. Totally silly season stuff”

However, the agent admitted that Valencia could be on his way this summer but stressed: “Everybody is expecting this, that and the other to happen but it might be as well to remember that it’s still only June.

“What I can say it that there’s nothing ¬†from inside England but there is from Europe and further afield. It’s early days at this point but yes there is definitely interest in the player.”
