Full-back feels he was denied the chance to join Fulham
Swansea City full-back Angel Rangel has expressed his disappointment at failing to secure a deadline day move to Fulham.
The Spaniard emerged as a target for the Premier League side during the latter stages of the January window and he was the subject of a bid from the Cottagers.
Rangel believes Fulham met Swansea's asking price for his services and he was keen to discuss the opportunity of a move to Craven Cottage.
And the 27-year-old, who joined the club from Terrassa in 2007, feels Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has denied him the chance to play in the top flight.
"I will be honest, what I know from my agent is that Fulham made an offer and it was the offer the (Swansea) chairman was asking for," Rangel told the Evening Post
"But then when everything about the deal was sorted and everything was ready, the chairman did not answer his phone or he turned it off.
"I think he asked for quite a lot of money for me and Fulham made a huge effort to get me, but he didn't want to sell.
"I think he asked for quite a high fee and he didn't expect Fulham to agree it.
"To be honest I am disappointed. We are not talking about another Championship club or a struggling Premier League club.
"I have always given my best for Swansea City, but I have always said I would like to consider it if a Premier League club came in for me.
"Swansea only paid a few thousand pounds for me so they would have got a good profit out of the deal.
"But it didn't happen and I am disappointed. I feel like the chairman has stopped me improving my career."
