Swansea City have taken over the lease of the Liberty Stadium so that they can take advantage of naming rights and call it Huw Jenkins, it’s been confirmed.

The club, patiently waiting until March to pull together a string of results, made the decision to ‘give the fans something back’ for all their support.

Club spokesperson Pete Bowen said: “We understand people may be unjustifiably concerned, so we took the lease over in order for us to change the name to instil some confidence.

“We’re all pretty relaxed here at the club, we’re an established Premier League Club now and relegation is for lesser experienced teams like Everton.

“Nevertheless, I am on Twitter and I have read some of the comments, so we figured we’d start paying some rent on the stadium because it’s not like we’re going to sign anyone.”

Bowen added: “I probably shouldn’t divulge this information, but after the inevitable success of this we’ll be renaming the Morfa Retail Park the Martin Morgan Retail Park.”

Swansea fan Theresa Connell said: “When they made this announcement I shouted at them that they should rename the Marina the Dineen-a and they said they’d take it on board.

“We’re screwed.”
