SWANSEA City hope to make Jamal Lowe’s return to the Welsh club a permanent one once his loan from AFC Bournemouth expires.

However, the Swans fear that Lowe’s wage demands may prove to big a roadblock to a potential move.

Attacker Lowe is currently on loan at Liberty Stadium from Cherries, with his contract at Bournemouth expiring this summer.

The Jamaican international’s time at Vitality Stadium is clearly up, with Lowe finishing last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers.

After training with the development squad in the summer, Lowe returned to Swansea City on another temporary switch.

Cherries signed Lowe from Swansea on transfer deadline in August 2022, paying Swansea £1.5million for his services.

In total Lowe made 40 appearances for Cherries, his last coming in the 2-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace in December 2022.

Across two spells with the Swans, Lowe has scored 22 goals in 90 appearances.

Speaking about the chance of retaining Lowe, Swansea City boss Luke Williams commented: “I think it’s going to be difficult because Jamal is on a Premier League salary.

“That could be a real issue.

“Jamal’s contract in his first spell here was probably when the club were still working almost on a Premier League budget. Then he went on (to Cherries) still on a Premier League level.

“But this club is no longer operating at that level. I think we have to be clear about what it’s going to look like if we are going to do anything at all.”
