Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has questioned the raised expectations of some on transfer deadline day.

Swans boss Brendan Rodgers captured defensive duo Fede Bessone and Darnel Situ on deadline day, but missed out on re-signing striker Fabio Borini.

Some have questioned the Swans' perceived lack of ambition in the market, but Jenkins is pleased the club spent within their means as they attempt to remain in the top flight.

Astonishing

Instead he has queried some people's expectations as regards deadline day, commenting: "I look at what many people seem to regard as ambition on deadline day and to me it's astonishing.

"Clubs sign players who are second or third choice and fans see it as a major boost.

"Then people think they're going to be saviours of their club and that just highlights what the transfer window can do.

"I find it astonishing how it works."
