Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says that West Ham have enquired about the availability of Darren Pratley another rumoured target of Leeds United.But Rodgers says the Premier League strugglers made no bid and he expects the midfielder to still be at Swansea when the January transfer window shuts.
" Avram Grant rang me from West Ham... last week in relation to Darren Pratley," Rodgers said.
"I told him honestly where Darren's at, there's still a big value on him but there was never a mention of any fee."Pratley, 25, is out of contract at the end of the season and suspended talks last August to focus on his football.
The highly-rated midfielder has also been linked with Newcastle United ,Bolton Wanderers,and Leeds United but West Ham were considered the leading contenders to snatch the former Fulham trainee.
