Stam is available as a free agent after seeing his contract at Wigan Athletic expire.

Jenkins admits that the Dutch full-back, who spent three years in the Premier League at the DW Stadium, is a player Swans boss Michael Laudrup has considered.

He is, however, one of a number of options - with Huddersfield Town's Jack Hunt another to figure on their radar.

There is no intention for a deal to be put to Stam any time soon, with it possible that the Swans will opt to keep faith with the right-backs already at their disposal.

Jenkins told the Evening Post: "Ronnie Stam is just one of a number of players we have been looking at as right-back cover.

"There have been no negotiations. He's just one option, along with the likes of Dwight Tiendalli and Jack Hunt at Huddersfield.

"I think we are covered at right-back with Angel Rangel and Jazz Richards, but it's up to Michael Laudrup whether he keeps Jazz or lets him go out on loan."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
