Lowe Joins Swans on Loan

Lowe Joins Swans on Loan

Swansea City have completed the signing of Wolves defender Keith Lowe and he'll be available for selection for Sunday's home game against Walsall.

Jackett tried to sign him last week but he failed because of the injury problems at the Championship club.

He said: 'We hope there will be no problems this time, though as it stands, it's a verbal agreement we've reached with Wolves and the paperwork should be completed on Friday morning.

'If it all goes through, it'll be a big boost for us as we've got a shortage of defenders - if you look at the bench against Colchester on Tuesday evening, we didn't have any back-up.'

'Keith's a central defender with good strength and pace,'

'The fact he was still needed at Wolves last week has worked out well for us, because there were one or two Championship clubs in for him then who have gone elsewhere.

'That's left the way open for us and we're glad to get him.'

The news comes as a big boost to the squad after the Sancho loan move failed and with the injury problems we currently have at the back.

The Wolves official site also states that the loan move could be extended until the end of the season, it'll probably depend on whether Glenn Hoddle will need him in the side, as they have injury problems of their own.

He can also play in the LDV Vans Trophy second leg at Layer Road next Tuesday.


Date of Birth: 13/09/1985
Height: 6' 2" (188cm)
Weight: 13st 3lbs (83.99kg)

Keith Lowe is a highly rated young defender who's also had loan spells with Burnley and QPR this season. He's a strong centre back who reads the game well and he should add some much needed pace to our defence.

He's mainly a centre half but can also play as a right full back. He started 12 games for Burnley on loan this season in all competitions, scoring 1 goal in the league cup.

His loan spell at QPR ended prematurely due to a change of manager.

Stuart Smith's view from Vital Wolves
I've always thought he was a decent enough defender. Injuries have restricted his career so far though. I think he will do well for you guys.

He is a solid player and will give 110% effort every would be good for him to go out on loan so he gets first team experience under his belt....

great, we needed a defender desperatley and lowe is a good demanding defender and will keep the jacks going. good singing kenny
10/03/2006 19:49:00
do you think he will be in the starting line-up
10/03/2006 20:00:00
just bin on the wolves website and he has played 20 games in a year and 15 goals have been conceded
10/03/2006 20:11:00
He should be in the side for definite, alongside Monk in the centre. Tate could go right back with Williams on the left, Ricketts could do with a rest.
10/03/2006 20:18:00
great news let's hope he fits the bill .
10/03/2006 21:02:00
Hope they can talk about extending the loan deal, we could do with a player to see the season out!
