Swansea transfer update: Matt Ingram arrival imminent, Bony return links and De Jong talks

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea City are looking to strengthen their squad this month.

Swansea City owner Huw Jenkins is intent on bolstering his side’s squad this month as they face the realistic possibility of relegation from the Premier League come next May.

The Swans have struggled this season, sacking boss Garry Monk and installing Alan Curtis in charge until the end of the season – a strategy which has prompted much debate among their supporters.

January represents a huge month for the club, and they need to make some deals to strengthen sufficiently.

According to a report in The Sun, a number of potential deals are in the pipeline starting with the imminent arrival of Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Matt Ingram for a £1million fee.

Swansea’s current number one is 30-year-old Lukasz Fabianski, yet Ingram would be a superb understudy as the 22-year-old has shown excellent promise for Wycombe this season.

The report goes on to say that another deal could be on the cards as Jenkins is said to be in deep conversations with AC Milan over a potential move for midfielder Nigel de Jong.

The former Manchester City man is out of favour at the San Siro and has been tipped to leave this month, with Milan ready to cash in as they seek to get him off the wage bill.

£4million is the price quoted for the Holland international, a potential bargain fee for a player with vast experience both in European competitions and the Premier League.

And last but not least, The Sun credit Swansea with an interest in bringing back striker Wilfried Bony following the Ivory Coast international’s struggles at Manchester City.

The 28-year-old is behind Sergio Aguero in the pecking order and City boss Manuel Pellegrini is open to the club selling him after Bony questioned the Chilean’s decision to drop him for an unfit Aguero.

With the Citizens said to be keen on adding a new striker this month, the report suggests that Swansea could get him back in a cut-price deal although Bony may now see the Swans as a step in the wrong direction.
