Huw Jenkins admits that they are having problems signing players on loan, to help our shortage of midfielders.
Manager Paulo Sousa is without 5 central midfielders ahead of Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest (Orlandi, Allen, Bodde, Pratley & Lopez) and he is keen to bring in 2 players to help us through the busy month ahead - as we play 7 games in March.
However, Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins admits that they're having problems in signing players on loan.
'It would certainly help if we could get one or two players when you consider the number of games we have coming up in March,'
'We have got players who are due back soon, but we need some cover in case they are delayed by a week or two.
'The problem is that it's not easy.
'As I have said to Paulo, I have been doing this for around eight years now and it's hard when you have got everybody trying to get the right player.
'Midfield is the priority for us and it could be that we get a couple of players in just to get us through this month.'
'There are very few Championship clubs who are just going to hand players over to you,' Jenkins added.
'We are searching the Premier League as well to see who is available.
'The problem is that clubs have injuries, or there are players who have not played a lot, so it is hard to find someone who will make the right impact for us.'
Huw Jenkins did have good news though, as Andrea Orlandi, Fede Bessone and Joe Allen should all be back within the next few weeks, he added:
'Darren Pratley's knee isn't that bad, then we have Andrea Orlandi, Joe Allen and Fede Bessone who should be back in the next few weeks,'
'It's difficult to bring players in when you know that within a few games we are going to be back with more or less the team which played against Derby a couple of weeks back.
'Some players will only come if they are guaranteed to play, and some managers will only let them come if they are guaranteed to play, so it's not easy.'
