Swansea City chief working round the clock on transfer deals
HUW Jenkins is pledging to work round the clock in a bid to bolster Swansea City's squad before Monday's transfer deadline.
Michael Laudrup reckons a pacy forward would be the final piece in the jigsaw at the end of a summer in which Swansea have already made six major signings.
And Jenkins is to miss out on Swansea's Europa League trip to Romania this week as he focuses instead on delivering a new frontman.
The Swansea chairman has confirmed he has spoken to West Brom about a possible move for Baggies outcast Peter Odemwingie.
But Jenkins says the Nigerian international is just one of a number of options being considered with five days left to complete a deal.
"We are trying hard to bring in another forward," Jenkins said, "and we will see how things develop over the next few days.
"We will do our best to make something happen and we are hopeful that we will get someone in — that is our aim.
"We have had discussions with West Brom (over Odemwingie), but we have been in discussions with lots of different clubs about different players.
"The one thing you learn about this stage of the window is that you cannot focus on only one target.
"You have got to have plenty of options, otherwise you might end up wasting your time."
Odemwingie looks destined to leave West Brom in the next few days having not trained with Steve Clarke's first-team squad this season.
However, Cardiff and Stoke are both thought to be interested as well, and Albion are likely sell to the highest bidder. It is thought Odemwingie is keen on switching to the Liberty — but Swansea must first agree a fee.
And Jenkins admits there are obstacles to clear on all the possible transfers he is working on.
"Whether it's a loan player or a permanent singing, all the clubs are trying to get the best deals they can," he added.
"The agents are trying to get the best deals they can, whether that means fees, security or length of contract.
"We don't want to be doing anything which is not right for our club, but I am hopeful that we will get something sorted out."
