Barnsley are keen on signing Swansea City duo Oliver McBurnie and Mark Birighitti on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom is looking to strengthen his squad before the close of the transfer window and is hoping to bring in striker McBurnie and goalkeeper Birighitti.

Australian goalkeeper Birighitti joined Swansea last summer from Newcastle Jets, but he has yet to make a first-team appearance at the Liberty Stadium.

The 26-year-old is behind Lukasz Fabianski and Kristoffer Nordfeldt in the pecking order in Paul Clement's plans and Swansea could be willing to loan him out so that he can some valuable first-team action under his belt

Barnsley have held a long-term interest in McBurnie and they are ready to step up their efforts to bring the former Bradford City youngster to Oakwell.

McBurnie is highly-rated at Swansea after joining the club from Bradford in 2015.

The 21-year-old made his breakthrough into the Swansea first-team last season making six appearances last term.

McBurnie scored twice on his first-team debut in a League Cup tie against Peterborough and he went on to make five appearances in the Premier League.

Swansea are open to the idea of loaning out McBurnie so that he can continue his development, but they do not want to sanction his move until Fernando Llorente is back to fitness.
