According to a report from Kickoff, Swansea are on the brink of signing K.V Oostende midfielder Emmanuel Banda, as Graham Potter looks to inject some youthful exuberance into his engine room.

The Swans were extremely poor for the most part last season, and eventually ended up finishing in 18th place in the Premier League table, three points adrift of safety.

Potter now has his work cut-out if he is to guide Swansea straight back up to the top flight, and he will need to bring in some real quality this summer in order to make that happen.

Kickoff claims that the Welsh outfit are on the brink of securing a deal to sign the 20-year-old Zambian, but there is no mention of any kind of fee.

Good signing for Swansea?

Banda has not been around too long, so Potter would be taking a risk bringing him to the Liberty Stadium.

He is an orthodox central midfielder by trade, and managed to chalk up three goals and two assists for Belgian side K.V. Oostende last season.

According to Transfer Markt, he is valued at just £630,000, so that would considerably reduce any risk involved in bringing him to Swansea.
