Swans linked with defender

Last Updated: Fri, 22 Nov 2013 09:00

Swansea are being heavily linked with a move for Hamburg defender Michael Mancienne ahead of the January transfer window.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup is on the look out for cover in central defence as Ashley Williams continues to struggle with injury and Mancienne has emerged as a target.

The former Chelsea man has slipped down the pecking order at Hamburg and reports in Germany claim the Bundesliga club will be willing to let him go in the New Year.

The 25-year-old appeals to Laudrup as he would not break the bank but Swansea would face competition from Stoke and Fulham for the player's signature.
