Swansea City's bid to keep hold of Oli McBurnie has taken a fresh twist.

Reports have emerged that the Blades are in advanced talks with Bournemouth's Lys Mousset after their £15million offer for McBurnie was rejected on Monday.

The striker has also opened up on his future after the Yeovil match on Tuesday night. You can read what he said here.

Elsewhere, they have been precious few developments for the Swans - although former Tottenham youngster Nathan Oduwa is on trial in SA1.

You can catch everything that happened throughout the day below.

McBurnie poll

Another call for this poll.

How much do we think that Swansea’s star man is worth?

If the Blades were to go any higher than £15million, would Swansea be silly to turn that offer down?

Goals key for Cooper

It sounds obvious, but Swansea are unbelievably reliant on McBurnie for goals. But at least Cooper acknowledges it.

There is no doubt that last season we were probably a bit too reliant on Oli to score goals. Ideally we want goals coming from all areas of the pitch, so was good to see that from Jay. George scored at the weekend for us too, albeit from a set play, but it gives them confidence. We have given the players a licence to get forward and give us more bodies high up the pitch and you could see that tonight and to get goals at the end of that is good. We have set that challenge to the players to provide goals from all areas of the pitch. So if we are doing that in pre-season then the message is being taken on board, and we want to maintain that throughout the season.

Where will the goals come from if the Scot departs? Worrying.

DJ electric - again

We know he’s not of this parish anymore, but like a proud parent watching their boy flee the nest, it’s just great to see him doing so well at United.

Yes, it is early days, and yes, it is only pre-season, but smashing Leeds - of all teams - must have been quite satisfying.

You had read the full article here, but this what MEN reporter Richard Fay said about his performance:

He is frightening on the break but still needs to work on his play in the final third. Solskjaer said this week that the Wales international is a raw talent, but that he can become a ‘top player’. It’s been a lively start, but a reminder that he can’t be put under too much pressure next season.

Full McBurnie story

So does this change things? It has to, surely?

Would Sheffield United be likely to spend £10million on one striker and close to £20million on another?

For a newly-promoted side, I’d doubt it.

Blades looking elsewhere?

The Daily Mail are reporting that Sheffield United could switch their attentions away from McBurnie.

Talks with Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset are at an “advanced stage”, according to reports.

James change

It seems that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a plan for Daniel James at Old Trafford.

James was electric for Swansea on the left last season but the United boss may use him in a different position.

Cooper on Oduwa

Former Tottenham youngster Nathan Oduwa is currently on trial with Swansea City.

The 23-year-old graduated from Spurs’ academy but left the North London club in 2017 having never made an appearance for their first team.

Oduwa had several loan spells away from Tottenham, featuring for Luton Town, Rangers, Colchester United and Peterborough United before joining NK Olimpija Ljubljana on a permanent deal in February 2017.

This is what Cooper had to say about the man...

Cooper on transfer talk

So this is what the boss had to say following the win over Yeovil last night. Not the most convincing, really, but what can we expect?

Every player has their price, as Cooper hints at. He said:

I think there’s a price on any player but at the moment the offers have been rejected. Until I hear any differently we’ll continue to keep working every day. He’s very happy, he’s working very hard in training and performing at a really good level. So as far as I’m concerned, I’m working with him like I am with all of the players and getting them ready for the start of the season.

Morning

Hello, and welcome to today’s live Swansea City coverage.

It’s out of my hands really, that’s the club’s decision. Those two (clubs) will speak about that, it’s for people way above my pay grade to talk about, I just get on with the football, it is what it is. It’s flattering because it means you’re doing something right, getting attention from clubs like that. But everyone who knows me knows I’ll keep my focus on the pitch and my head in the football. I won’t let my head turn and I’ll get on with things. It’s not my decision, it’s for people way above me to decide. I’ll get on with the football, I’m more than happy to do that and let them sort it out between themselves.

The full interview is here. What do you think? Will he be here for next season?
