Swansea City will not alter player policy for Europa League
HUW Jenkins insists Swansea City are not about to start splashing the cash as they prepare to do battle on four fronts next season.
As well as the two domestic cups and the league, Swansea will attempt to compete in the Europa League for the first time next term.
And though Jenkins accepts Swansea's European involvement may make them more attractive to players, he says the club will continue their safety-first spending policy.
"There probably will be more players who want to come and join us, but like always we'll try to make sure we get the right players here for the right reasons," said the Swansea chairman.

"That's not only a financial thing, it's about making sure the right people come here and want to be part of the club and the way we do things. That will never change for any reason."
Jenkins also accepts that Swansea's stars are still likely to leave the Liberty from time to time.
He added: "We're not under any illusions that there are certain clubs in the Premier League and in Europe who pay substantial amounts of money out in salaries and, this summer or next summer, somebody will be tempted at some time or another and we'll have to deal with it like we had to last summer.
"We're not going to be shouting about anything different than before."
There have been suggestions that Swansea must increase the size of their squad to cope with the demands of a European campaign — but Jenkins says that is no foregone conclusion.
"What we went through in January as a team and squad with all the games we had to play from Wednesday to Saturday gave a good insight into how things will probably be next season," he said.
"I have spoken to the players and a lot of them actually enjoyed that period of time where they were playing in midweek and then recovering before playing again on the weekend.
"A few of the players said it was their best time of the season so far."
