The Swans are known to have made several approaches to Millwall for teenager Abdul Abdulmalik and, after a spell training with Portsmouth they have decided not to follow up interest in the player which opens the door once again for the Swans.
Teenage England under-17 forward Abdulmalik’s contract expired over a week ago but he remains unable to join a new club with Millwall digging their heels in and so far refusing to negotiate with interested parties.
Swansea’s highest offer was believed to be a structured package worth around £200,000 with further add-ons.
The Lions have attempted to persuade Abdulmalik to stay by offering him a new deal, but their proposal is considered derisory and not reflective of club claims that the 18 year-old has a big future at The Den.
Due to his age, though, he cannot leave unless Millwall agree a fee with one of his suitors, an outcome that would prevent the situation and compensation being decided via a tribunal.
Abdulmalik is also believed to be attracting interest from both Arsenal and Rangers.
