Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins insists Bolton have not made an offer for midfielder Ferrie Bodde.

Reports on Tuesday suggested Wanderers had tabled a bid of £1.5million for the 27-year-old, but Swansea were holding out for a fee closer to £5million.

Should a fee be agreed, it is understood 50% will go to Bodde's former club ADO Den Haag, as a clause was agreed upon the Dutchman's move to the Liberty Stadium in 2007.

Speaking about the interest in the midfielder, Jenkins denied any official bids.

"I'm fully aware of speculation about Ferrie Bodde, but there has been no official offer," Jenkins told the Evening Post.

"I have had an indication from an agent that Bolton may be interested and Ferrie, like Jason Scotland, has come out in the press in the past to express his wish to play Premier League football.

"But both players are contracted to Swansea City and, from the speculation I have heard, the valuations being talked about fall way short of what we feel these two players are worth."
