Swansea City closing in on loan deal for Norwich City, Blackburn Rovers transfer target

Swansea City are closing in on a deal to sign Union SG left-back Matthew Sorinola on loan, a report from Wales Online has claimed.

Swansea City have wasted no time in bringing in some fresh faces this summer.

Defenders Ola Wasiri Williams, Nathan Wood and Harry Darling have all come through the door at the Stadium, with the latter mentioned Darling already familiar with Russell Martin from their time together at MK Dons.

Now, it has emerged that another of Martin’s former Dons is set to arrive in South Wales.

Wales Online claims that Swansea City are set to sign young left-back Sorinola on loan from Belgian outfit Union SG. The 21-year-old left MK Dons after breaking through under Martin’s management but after seeing limited game time in Belgium, he is now poised to return to the EFL.

Sorinola hasn’t been without interest either. Norwich City, Blackburn Rovers and Reading were all linked with the youngster at the start of this month, but it seems as though the Swans have struck a deal for his signature.

A smart addition…

Sorinola could prove to be a clever signing for Martin and Swansea City, even if it is only on a temporary basis.

He will already know what the manager demands of him having worked under his management at Stadium MK and will be familiar with how the boss intends to play and the philosophy he follows. That should help him settle into his new club smoothly despite the new surroundings.

The Londoner looked a really promising talent during his time with MK Dons and it will be hoped that Martin can get the best out of him again should they link up at Swansea City.
