Swansea In For Stoke's Clint Hill?

Swansea In For Stoke's Clint Hill?
The former Oldham defender has emerged as the first defender (rumoured) to be linked with a move as Roberto Martinez hopes to bring in a centre back before Friday's game at home to Carlisle United.

A loan move looks unlikely for Hill unless it would result in a permenant switch in January. The 29 year-old has started two games in the Championship and it doesn't look as if Stoke City boss Tony Pulis would want to offload the player anytime soon.

Hill has totalled up £370,000 in transfer fees during his career. Oldham paid Tranmere £250,000 for his services in 2002. He spent just a year at Boundary Park as Stoke paid £120,000 for him in 2003.

Hill won the Fans' Player of the Year award for the 2004/05 season as his no nonsense style at the back made him a crowd favourite at the Britannia Stadium.

He has been hampered with injuries during his time at Stoke. He started just 9 games in the 2002/03 season as he spent time out with an ankle injury. A knee ligament injury followed in 2005 and that year he made only 12 starts for the Potters.

At the moment, A loan move only looks possible to me if it will result in a permenant switch when the transfer window re-opens in January. I'm sure a fee would certainly be involved if he was to sign but it seems unlikely at this stage.

Please Note: This is a rumour and has been posted in our rumours section for a reason. Please don't automatically assume we're reporting that he's actually going to sign, as yet there has been no confirmation that we're interested in the player.
