Swansea City have been linked with a season-long loan move for Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork.
It hasn't taken long for the media to link Brendan Rodgers with one of his former colleagues at Chelsea.
The Swans boss worked with Jack Cork whilst he was Youth Team Manager at Stamford Bridge, and the Mirror believe that Rodgers will team up with him again next season.
The 21 year-old has had a number of loan spells at various clubs including Bournemouth, Scunthorpe, Southampton, Watford and Coventry. Last season, he spent the final few months on loan at Burnley.
Cork is a versatile player who is comfortable both in defence and midfield.
Jack's father Alan, former manager of Swansea City, says his son is willing to leave Chelsea for a lower-League club.
Alan Cork said in May:
"I think he`s pretty much realised now that it`s not going to happen for him at Chelsea,"
"He has been there since he was seven but they`ve got about 40 players, and they have just won the Youth Cup so they have a lot of good young players.
"They have Ryan Bertrand who has been out on loan at Reading, Scott Sinclair at Wigan and Michael Mancienne at Wolves.
"If eight or nine of them go back at once they`re not all going to get a game.
"Jack has got two years left on his contract at Chelsea, so it`s all down to what they want to do.
"I think Coventry put a bid in for him previously but they turned it down.
"He`ll go back to speak to Chelsea and Frank Arnesen on Monday or Tuesday and find out what their plans are.
"He has played in a few teams that have been struggling now and I think he would just like to be in a team that is winning more games.
"He would go anywhere.
"I don`t think dropping down to the Championship would worry him.
"It`s been disappointing for Jack that Burnley have been relegated but personally it has gone well for him.
"He has enjoyed it there."
