I’M A little late to runs this I know, but Premier League newcomers are lining up a deal which would see legend Marcos Senna trots out for them next season.
The Welsh club have been alerted to the fact the veteran 28-cap Spanish midfield general – a European Championship winner in 2008 – is available on a free this Summer after running out of contract with Villareal.
Should the deal go through, Senna – a defensive midfield rock who plays in the ‘Makelele’ role – would undoubtedly be the biggest name to ever line up for the Swans, and would provide the stability needed for the squad to challenge to stay in the top flight.
Agent Ely Coimbra said: “Marcos Senna had a previous conversation by phone with Swansea manager Mr Brendan Rodgers and that made him very proud and honoured with the possible interest of Swansea to have him in the squad for the Premier League.
“Marcos is very happy with the possibility and of course keen to play Premier League football, but we want to make very clear that we are right now on preliminary contacts.
“But of course Swansea City can be a very attractive option, since Mr Rodgers explained to Marcos his ideas about his team and part of Swansea’s project – which pleased him a lot – and obviously because of the nice and vibrant city of Swansea.”
