Also out on loan on deadline day is midfielder Kristian O'Leary as he has joined fellow League One side Cheltenham Town.
The 29 year-old looks set to make his debut for the Robins when they face Brentford on Friday night at Whaddon Road.
There were rumours not long ago that Kenny Jackett will not be renewing his contract at the end of the season.
The defender-come-midfielder has spent 11 years with the Swans and he said it was a difficult decision to make: 'It was a very difficult decision for me,''
'It's going to be strange playing somewhere else after 11 years as a senior pro with Swansea. It's all I've known.
'But Kenny (Jackett) offered me the chance to get a string of games under my belt and for pure footballing reasons I felt it was the best thing for me to do at the moment.
'I've had a frustrating 18 months with injuries and non-selection and I haven't played as regularly as I would have wanted, especially as it's my testimonial year.
'My heart is and always will be at Swansea, especially as the fans have always been brilliant with me.
'It's still my intension to wear the Swans shirt again with pride. Once I've got a few first team games under my belt at Cheltenham I aim to return and force my way back into the side on a regular basis.''
Cheltenham manager says he'll be a good signing and the loan deal could even be extended: 'We have moved quickly to plug the gap left by Grant McCann and I'm sure Kris O'Leary will be an excellent signing for us.
'He has a wealth of experience in Leagues One and Two and actually played last week against Port Vale so he comes to us nice and fresh.
'He will bring strength and experience to the midfield area and we will look at the possibility of extending the loan if it all works out well for us.'
