Fernando Llorente Will Stay At Swansea – Manager Paul Clement

Swansea manager Paul Clement says he is confident Fernando Llorente will stay at the club after admitting the club are in limbo over the Gylfi Sigurdsson transfer saga. Swansea and Everton remain in talks to break the deadlock over Sigurdsson's protracted transfer to Goodison Park, and Clement is keen Llorente does not follow the Icelandic playmaker out of the exit door at the Liberty Stadium.
Clement says the 32-year-old target-man will remain at the club, despite reported interest from champions Chelsea and a possible reunion with his former Juventus boss Antonio Conte.
He said “Llorente has got a year to go on his deal and we'd like him to stay for this year and longer, I'm confident he will because of the conversations I've had with Fernando. He's happy here, he likes the work we're doing, and he likes the way we play. He's a really good player and it's a shame with the injury he got in the summer. It's a freak one and he did finish off the season strongly. His goals were vital and we want to have him as an option.”
