Swansea City may well have found a solution to their search for a defensive reinforcement before the January window closes. Despite being linked with several defenders, Swansea keep facing hurdles which sees everything go back to square one.

Spanish newspaper Marca are reporting on Monday evening that Deportivo La Coruna have agreed to loan Pablo Insua to Swansea until the end of the season, with the Welsh club then having an option to sign the player permanently.

That doesn’t make it a done deal, because whilst Deportivo La Coruna own Insua, he’s currently at Leganes on loan. Leganes would have to agree to let the player leave early, and would be looking for compensation to do so, with Marca saying the club is asking for a hefty €1m.

This all looks promising for Swansea, and if Leganes get their €1m, Paul Clement should get his central defender.

Pablo Insua is 23 years of age, right footed, and an out and out central defender.
