Swansea City remain hopeful regarding their efforts to sign Serbian defender Dusko Tosic.
The 25-year-old is currently in transfer limbo, finding himself without a club and unsure where he stands.
He has been training with the Swans, though, and travelled with their squad for the 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
Tosic arrived in England in February, believing he was on the verge of completing a move to Portsmouth.
However, his switch from Werder Bremen was wrecked by Premier League tape, preventing him from penning a contract.
He was looking to move to Fratton Park outside of the transfer window as a free agent, but saw his registration withheld due to Portsmouth's administration problems.
Tosic has since left Pompey, having realised such a switch is doomed, but he is unable to join another club until clearance is granted.
Swansea are hoping that will be sooner rather than later, with Paulo Sousa keen to bring the Serbia international on board.
"We believe there is a way he could possibly play for us this season," the Portuguese coach said in Wales on Sunday.
