Report: Swansea turn down Wolves loan offer for forward Eder

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with Swansea City’s Eder.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Swansea City have turned down a loan approach from Wolverhampton Wanderers for forward Eder.

Kenny Jackett’s side are currently in the market for a new striker, having recently sold top scorer Benik Afobe to Premier League newcomers Bournemouth for a tidy sum.

With a number of potential targets sounded out, Wolves are seemingly keen at exploring short-term options until the summer in a bid to keep their faltering season alive.

Swansea’s out of favour Eder has been earmarked as an ideal option, yet the Daily Mail claim that a loan approach from the Championship side has swiftly been turned down.

The Portugal international moved to the Liberty Stadium from Braga last summer, yet so far he has only made two Premier League starts with another ten appearances coming off the bench.

His last showing in a Swansea shirt came in the narrow 1-0 defeat at Liverpool back in November – a clear indication that he is out of favour with current boss Alan Curtis.

However, he bizarrely looks set to stay at the club with reports stating that Wolves have been rebuffed in their attempts to take the 28-year-old on loan until the end of the season.

The Championship side are in dire need of fresh impetus at Molineux, and their latest 3-1 home reverse to Cardiff City is a clear indication of the club lacking strength in key areas.
