Jenkins ready to back Bradley in January

Huw Jenkins, the chairman of Premier League side Swansea City, has publicly backed manager Bob Bradley by stating transfer funds will be made available.

With the January transfer window looming, the Swans are expected to invest significantly in the first-team squad in order to strengthen their fight against relegation.

Languishing at the bottom of the table, the Welsh club have struggled to compete after losing two key players in the off-season, attacker Andre Ayew to West Ham United and former captain Ashley Williams to Everton.

"We don't control every story that goes out in the press. The recent story about Bob Bradley [getting sacked], I don't know where that came from," he told BBC Sport.

"Our main aim is to make sure we get things right over the next three games and have a few discussions over the next few weeks to make sure we strengthen the team in January.

"We are fully committed to try and make sure we compete and stay in the Premier League every year," Jenkins added.

"We haven't gone into individuals sort of money but they are fully committed to make some signings to give everybody a lift to go forward.

"We need some players in to give everybody a lift."
