and live on Freeview channel 276
The striker, 23, has spent the past two seasons at the south Wales outfit. He’s enjoyed a successful period since arriving from PSV Eindhoven, scoring 44 goals in 92 appearances.
Duff took charge of Swansea last month as he succeeded Russell Martin in the hot seat. And while the former Barnsley chief hopes that Piroe stays, the Swans will have plans if he does depart.
Speaking to Wales Online, Duff said: “I had some good conversations with Joel at our training camp in Spain last week and he was asking about detail in what I want from him.
“Until anything changes we will keep on having those conversations. If he goes, he goes, and if he doesn’t he stays – it is not personal, it’s football. I understand he’s the big name at the club and only has a year left on his contract. There will be plans in place in terms of the way we play if he stays, and plans for if he goes.”
