Swansea have played down reports of potential foreign investment coming in to the club – but admit they are looking at possible overseas sponsorship avenues. Press Association The Barclays Premier League club denied takeover speculation surrounding them after reports said they are t alking to possible investors from the United States, Russia and Asia. A club spokesman told the Press Association that preliminary talks were designed to increase commercial investment and revenue streams. Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said in September that Swansea were “miles behind” most of their rivals in terms of commercial income. “One of the big things we need to do if we are to develop as a club, and try our best to compete with the best teams, is find a way of growing commercially,” Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post. ” At the moment, the income levels we have are basically just linked to the football side of things – television revenue and that sort of thing. “The only other way we have got to bring money in is trading players. “They are the only tools we can use to make money, so the commercial aspect is something we have to look at. “We have to find ways of bringing in extra income. It’s difficult for a club like us down in south Wales to do that, but we have got to find a way of attracting big money and big sponsors from around the world.” Swansea – who were playing in the fourth tier of English football 10 years ago – currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, six points behind leaders Chelsea.
“Un De Sceaux is as fresh as paint after his fall and I am keen to run him soon. “There are two races towards the end of this month that he is entered in, one in Ireland (Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown) and one in the UK (Clarence House Chase at Ascot). “Long Dog has had a busy season so we might just go be easy on him now. He is unlikely to race again until Cheltenham. “Another run before Cheltenham would be ideal for Vautour, but I’m not sure where yet. “Faugheen, Nichols Canyon and Arctic Fire are all likely to run next in the BHP Irish Champion Hurdle.” Annie Power was not sighted over Christmas as she continues to progress from an injury, but Mullins has not yet ruled out giving her a prep run for the Cheltenham Festival. He said: “Annie Power is coming on slowly but nicely, and I’m happy with where she is at the moment. “We won’t know until she steps up to the next stage of training whether she will have a run before Cheltenham, but the aim is Cheltenham.” Press Association Willie Mullins is happy with the condition of his Christmas aces after they all returned to their Closutton stables in rude health. Mullins enjoyed numerous Grade One victories over the hectic festive schedule, though Un De Sceaux’s fall at Leopardstown on December 27 was a sizeable blot on the landscape. “They have all come out of Christmas well – no setbacks,” said the trainer.
