HITC Sport understands the Swansea City goalkeeper could return to Holland on loan.

Swansea City goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt is being lined up for a return to former club Heerenveen on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Nordfeldt joined Swansea from Dutch side Heerenveen for an undisclosed fee in the summer 2015, but he has had limited first-team opportunities.

The 28-year-old has played just two Premier League games for the Swans since his arrival at the Liberty Stadium and both of those were end-of-the-season encounters.

Nordfeldt has made a total of nine appearances during his two years at Swansea as he has been unable to usurp Lukasz Fabianski as first-choice goalkeeper.

Nordfeldt is keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football this season, as he wants to safeguard his place in the Sweden squad ahead of next summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.

Swansea are ready to send Nordfeldt out on loan as they feel they have enough cover in the goalkeeping department to let him go out and get some regular action under his belt.

Several Championship sides have been credited with an interest in Nordfeldt, but Heerenveen are hopeful of luring the shot-stopper back to Holland.

Nordfeldt is still highly-regarded at Heerenveen after making over 120 appearances for the club during his three seasons at the club.
