Swansea hoping to wrap up deals for three midfielders

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea are closing in on the signings of Yeltsin Tejeda, Benjamin Stambouli and Jack Cork as Garry Monk looks to strengthen the Swans midfield.

Swansea are reportedly in talks to sign three midfielders before the end of the transfer window as Garry Monk looks to bolster the Swans options in the middle of the park.

All three players are more defensive midfield options, who would allow the numerous attacking threats already in the squad to cause more damage in the final third.

Leon Britton, Jonjo Swansea and Ki Sung-Yueng are currently the most likely to play in the centre of midfield, but none of the trio are highly defensive.

Costa Rican midfielder Yeltsin Tejeda is believed to be close to joining after a proposed move to French club Evian fell through as the 22-year-old failed to report for talks.

Tejeda currently plays for Costa Rican side Deportivo Saprissa, and is believed to be available for just £600,000 if Swansea can wrap up a deal.

The Swans have also made an approach for Benjamin Stambouli, who plays for Montpellier in France and the 24-year-old is another defensive midfielder who could improve the side.

While the club have also made an enquiry about the availability of Southampton's Jack Cork, and the versatile midfielder would give Garry Monk and extra option at the back as well as in midfield.

Cork can play at right-back as well as in the middle of the park and if all three players are brought in, Swansea will have an abundance of options in midfield.

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jefferson Montero are two midfielders who have been brought in this summer, but the club clearly feel that more emphasis must be placed on the defensive areas of the midfield.
