Denmark international Thomas Kahlenberg keen on Swansea City
SWANSEA City have seen the door to sign Thomas Kahlenberg fly open.
The Danish international appeared close to joining French outfit St Etienne, only for the deal to fall through.
The 29-year-old still has a year to run on the contract he signed with Wolfsburg after completing a £3 million move from Auxerre in 2009. But he ended last season on loan at another French side, Evian, and it appears he will be allowed to leave the Bundesliga club for a nominal fee.
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has admitted Kahlenberg is one of a number of potential targets he has discussed with Michael Laudrup. And sources close to the former Auxerre man suggested he would be interested in a move to South Wales, though the Evening Post understands Swansea have not yet made contact with the player.

The attacking midfielder would be a straight replacement for Gylfi Sigurdsson, who could now be heading for Spurs and not following Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool as expected.
Reports in Germany claim the Hoffenheim player, who spent the second half of last season on loan at the Liberty, has agreed an £8 million switch to the managerless North London club.
Kahlenberg was part of the Denmark squad that failed to escape their group in Euro 2012, but did not feature in any of his side's three matches.
He began his senior career at Brondby where he spent three years working under Laudrup.
The pair developed a good relationship, one it is believed Kahlenberg would be keen to revive, should he be offered a chance at Swansea.
After leaving Brondby in 2005, Kahlenberg spent four years at Auxerre, before a disappointing move to Wolfsburg where injury hampered his progress.
Meanwhile, Swansea and Wigan are being linked with Middlesbrough full-back Tony McMahon.
