Being a Celtic fan I have been keeping an eye on Swansea's Ki and you the difference in quality between the SPL and The Premier League is massive, Up north he was famed for his accuracy from long range and he could get some power in them as well it's why he was nicknamed Kirrard, but he hasn't had a chance to show of that ability down south since he doesn't get as much time and space as he did in Scotland, but I have seen a massive improvement in his passing and on the ball movement since moving to Swansea
For what it's worth he had a really good game against us. But that might just mean wer're at the level of the SPL
But it is less good news for the club regarding Kelly, a member of England's Euro 2012 squad, who has turned down an offer worth £35,000 a week in wages and appearance money and is now awaiting the club's reaction before making his next move.
The versatile defender who, like Sterling, has 18 months left on his present deal, is recovering from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained against Manchester United in September.
He forced his way into Roy Hodgson's squad in the summer after impressing on his England debut against Norway in May.
