Swansea boss Kenny Jackett has reaffirmed his interest in winger Marc Goodfellow.Swansea City boss Kenny Jackett has reaffirmed his interest in bringing Bristol City winger Marc Goodfellow back to South Wales.
The 23-year-old is free to leave the Ashton Gate club after failing to establish himself since his switch from Stoke City back in January 2004.
Goodfellow impressed Jackett while on loan with The Swans last season, but stressed he has other areas in his squad that presently need more attention.
"I'm definitely still interested in Marc Goodfellow," Jackett told the South Wales Evening Post.
"But I haven't moved for him since the end of the season because I do not view left midfield as a priority position.
"Marc's a talented player, no question, and he's someone I'll be pursuing if I get my first targets and I have a little bit of money left over.
"I'm hopeful that will be the case."
Should Swansea move for Goodfellow, The Robins are thought to want around £15,000 for the left-sided midfielder.
Meanwhile, Swansea are keen to extend defender Sam Ricketts's contract until the summer of 2008.
The former Oxford United and Telford United player has a year left on his current Swans deal, but chairman Huw Jenkins is keen to secure one of their key squad members to a longer deal.
''We're talking about two more years on top of the one that is still to run on Sam's contract,'' Jenkins said.
''He was entitled to renegotiate as a result of our promotion, but we are looking to go beyond next summer."
