Swansea City vulnerable to losing key defender

Swansea City are vulnerable to losing key defender Mike van der Hoorn.

The Dutchman is out of contract at the Liberty Stadium at the end of the season and is still yet to commit his future to the Championship side, according to a report by Wales Online.

van der Hoorn, who is 27 years-old, will be free to speak to other clubs soon.

Swansea will have some thinking to do if they receive a transfer fee for him in the upcoming January transfer window if they want to avoid losing him for nothing in the summer.

Their boss, Steve Cooper, has said, as per Wales Online: “Leon Britton’s on board now as our sporting drector. We’re working closely together but ultimately he’ll be the one looking at that more than me. I work with the players getting ready for games. I don’t think too much about that.”

“We’re not even at Christmas yet and there’s so much to deal with anyway in terms of the games coming up. There’s a few contracts up by all accounts, but I’ll let Leon deal with that. Whether he’ll be quite so calm about things in January remains to be seen.”

van der Hoorn joined the Swans in July 2016 from Ajax for a fee of around £2 million. He has since played over 100 games for the Welsh side and he is a player that they are eager to tie down on a new deal.
