Swansea bid for Anderson accepted

Paul Anderson
Anderson was with Swansea City for promotion to the Championship

Liverpool have accepted a six-figure bid from Swansea City for winger Paul Anderson, who has spent the season on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Anderson, 20, was on loan to the Swans from Liverpool when they won promotion to the Championship in 2007/08, scoring seven goals in 31 league appearances.

Swans manager Roberto Martinez is also assessing other signing options.

"Paul is one of a number of options we are pursuing," chairman Huw Jenkins told the Swansea City website.

"Roberto has highlighted a number of players he is interested in and we have been pursuing them while he has been away scouting various players in various countries.


"The offer has been accepted by Liverpool, but it is still subject to us agreeing personal terms and Roberto sitting down with the player for further talks.

"Whoever we sign, we want players who want to play for Roberto and Swansea City.

"That attitude is vital - however good they are."

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has already indicated that he would like to keep Anderson permanently.
