It sadly looks increasingly likely that wee Joe Allen will be leaving the club this summer.
According to reports in the Echo tonight, Swansea City have solidified their interest in bringing the Welshman back to his homeland.
“I think it has been well-documented that Joe is going to look at his future when he is finished out at Euro 2016,” said Swansea chairman, Huw Jenkins.
“Naturally, we are interested in good players like Joe who may be available this summer given that he has a year left on his contract.”
Allen is out of contract with us at the end of next season, and as yet, no discussions have taken place with the club.
It’s clear that Klopp doesn’t really fancy him. The Welsh Xavi only started eight leagues all season, and four of those were against Bournemouth, Newcastle, Watford, and West Brom once we’d starting alternating our ‘A’ and ‘B’ sides at the end of the domestic campaign.
Allen joined us back in the summer of 2012; he was the first major arrival of the Rodgers era. He’s gone on to play 129 games and score seven goals across all competitions – though he’s only started more than 16 league games once in four years.
With no European football next term, and with Grujic arriving and rumours about another midfield arrival refusing to go away, Joe now appears to be heading to towards the exit door.
