Swansea have confirmed they are closing in on the signing of Sheffield United winger David Cotterill.
As revealed by skysports.com earlier this week Swansea have lined up a loan switch with a view to a permanet deal for the Wales international.
Cotterill has dropped down the pecking order at Bramall Lane and Blades boss Kevin Blackwell is willing to let him move on.
Swansea manager Paulo Sousa is keen to bolster his squad and Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed a deal to take Cotterill to the Liberty Stadium is in the offing.
"We are interested and we have been talking to Sheffield United," said Jenkins.
"We are getting closer. We are certainly closer than we were last week, but nothing has been finalised as yet."
