Swans could seal Placheta deal

Swansea City are eyeing a deadline-day move for Norwich City’s Poland international Przemyslaw Placheta.

Placheta, 25, is a left-sided midfielder although he has played at left-back.

His Norwich contract expires at the end of the season.

Placheta has made 61 appearances since joining Norwich in 2020, scoring two goals, and had an injury-hit loan spell at Birmingham City last season.

He has played 19 times for Norwich this season – but made only six starts – and has not featured since a defeat at Millwall on 29 December.

Swansea are short of left-sided options having sent Nathanael Ogbeta and Nathan Tjoe-A-On out on loan this month.

Josh Tymon is their first-choice left-wingback, while Kristian Pedersen has not featured in a league game since October and could be allowed to leave before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
