I would dearly like read that Norwich had had something very similar to the following written into any agreements with Aston Villa, I think Swansea have made a wise move in securing this. Whether it will work in practice is another matter.
We have over the years seen managers leave a club only to go back and raid the players, Lambert purchased David Fox and Marc Teirney from Colchester. Anything that can slow or stop that from happening can only be a good thing.
"Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has revealed an agreement is in place to prevent newly-appointed Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers signing players from his former club for 12 months."
