Swansea plan move for Senna

Premiership new boys Swansea look set to make an audacious move for Spanish midfielder Marcos Senna, according to The Sun.

The 34-year old is available on a free transfer as his contract with Villarreal expires next month and will not be renewed. The tough-tackling midfielder would be a great addition to Swansea’s side but would have to accept a significant pay cut to move to the Welsh side.

Senna was born in Brazil has represented Spain 28 times and was a key part of the Euro 2008-winning side. However, he was unfortunate to miss out on the triumphant World Cup squad last Summer at the expense of Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets.

Senna first moved to Spain with Villarreal in 2002 and went on to make 228 league appearances. The former club captain also scored 15 times for the club, including a strike from inside the centre circle in 2008.

Senna had been linked with Manchester United in previous summers and Scottish side Rangers look set to also make a move for the veteran midfielder. However, Swansea appear to be in pole position to move for the player as he has stated his desire to play Premiership football before he retires.
