Swansea City ask about a string of forwards on deadline day
SWANSEA City have made deadline-day enquiries for a clutch
of forwards after selling Danny Graham – but it seems increasingly unlikely
that Michael Laudrup will add a new face before the transfer deadline.
Swansea have been looking for
a loan signing to bolster their attacking options having allowed Graham to join
Sunderland in a £5 million deal earlier today.
It is understood Swansea have expressed an interest in
Sevilla's Manu, Manchester City frontman John Guidetti and Jamie Mackie of
Queens Park Rangers.
Swansea have also been linked
with Oscar Diaz, who plays for Spanish second tier side Lugo, and Senegalese international Moussa
But as the clock ticks towards the 11pm deadline, it seems there is
little sign of Swansea
getting a deal done.
There is an outside chance that Mackie could end up at the Liberty, but that may
depend on whether Rangers land Peter Odemwingie.
West Brom star Odemwingie
has arrived at Loftus Road
tonight despite the Baggies insisting that he has not been given permission to
speak to the Hoops.
Laudrup is thought to be an admirer of Manu, a player he
worked with when he was in charge at Getafe.
And Swansea are thought to have asked again about Guidetti having previously asked about the Swedish starlet. However, it seems City
are unwilling to let the 20-year-old leave the Etihad despite interest from a
number of clubs.
As well as Graham, Gwion Edwards has left Swansea today, the young winger joining
Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone on loan for the rest of the season.
