Jackett Looking To Loan Midfielder

Jackett Looking To Loan Midfielder

After the arrival of Marcos Painter this week, Swansea City manager Kenny Jackett is still looking to bring in another loanee.

He concedes though that it is highly unlikely that he'll sign someone today but is still hoping to bring in a midfielder before next week's loan deadline.

With Darren Pratley, Owain Tudur-Jones and Darren Way all set to miss the game, Jackett's options are limited in the centre of midfield.

Jackett said: ''I am looking to bring someone in if I can,''

''There's nothing imminent because the standard of player I could have got this week has been no better than what we've already got.

''I've got Leon Britton, Andy Robinson, Shaun MacDonald, Kris O'Leary and possibly Alan Tate who can play in the centre of midfield.

''I'm looking for better than that if I'm going to sign anyone, or possibly a younger player.''


Marcos Painter also met his new team-mates today and he seems to have settled in quickly.

'I'm really looking forward to it,''

'The boys made me feel welcome straight away and hopefully I can get a few first team games under my belt and help Swansea move a step closer to promotion.''

'At this stage in my career, I need more than reserve team football. It has become a bit frustrating for me because it's not ideal coming in every now and again.''


A permanant move for Painter looks unlikely though as he wants to return to his hometown club: 'I am a Birmingham player and a Birmingham lad; it's my club and everyone knows that I want to play for them.

'The first thing I have got to do, before thinking about anything else, is impress at Swansea and do well for them. Then we will see what happens.'
