Swansea starlets James Demetriou and Henry Jones set for loan moves

HITC Sport understands Swansea City are ready to send highly-rated young duo James Demetriou and Henry Jones out on loan.

A host of League One and League Two clubs are lining up moves to sign Swansea City starlets James Demetriou and Henry Jones on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Demetriou joined Swansea last summer from Nottingham Forest on a two-year contract last summer, but has yet to play a first-team game for the Welsh club.

Midfielder Jones, who has been at Swansea from the age of eight, has come through the ranks at Swansea and has captained the club's Under-21s on a regular basis.

Demetriou and Jones are regulars in Swansea's Under-21s side, but have so far failed to make the breakthrough into Garry Monk's first-team.

With both players are unlikely to figure in Monk's plans this season the club feel the next stage in their developments would be to go out on loan.

The pair are highly-regarded within the corridors of power at the Liberty Stadium and the club feel the duo would be best served to go out on loan this season to gain some valuable first-team experience.

A number of League One and League Two clubs are thought to have made enquiries about skilful midfielder Jones and Cypus Under-21 international Demetriou.
