Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins insists the club comes before players
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says the club have suspended contract talks with players to focus on their Premier League promotion push.
The Swans are second in the Championship with 19 games to go.
But they risk losing midfielder Darren Pratley, defender Angel Rangel and goalkeeper Dorus de Vries for nothing by waiting until the summer.
"It is just a common sense approach to take pressure off the players," Jenkins told BBC Sport Wales.
"What we're trying to do is clarify this so we can look forward and be fully focused on what lies ahead for the club over the next few months.
"It's trying to put everybody's mind clear, the media in particular, that there's no need to look to ask questions and put any pressure on our players to make statements about their contract situation.
"It follows on from Darren Pratley [who put talks on hold last August] in the last few months in which we know full well that... that's been shelved until the end of the season.
"And to be fair to Darren, he's been fantastic on the field and we want that to continue.
"We want every player to be fully focused and doing their best for the team and see where we get to at the end of the season."
