In Focus: Spurs star closing in on Swansea return

According to Sky Sports, Swansea are on the verge of completing a £4.5m transfer for Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll.

What’s the word?

Swansea boss Paul Clement confirmed on Thursday that his club were in talks with Spurs over a deal for Carroll, who has found game time difficult to come by this season.

The midfielder is expected to travel to Swansea to complete the paperwork with the deal likely to be finalised soon.

Swansea, who completed the signing of Luciano Narsingh on Thursday, are said to also be in negotiations with Norwich over a deal for defender Martin Olsson.

Swansea return…

The former England U-21 international has made just a single league appearance for Tottenham this season, coming on as a substitute against Crystal Palace in August.

Carroll is no stranger to Swansea fans after making 13 appearances for the club while on a season-long loan from Tottenham in the 2014/15 season.
