Swansea are in talks with Aston Villa about signing winger Scott Sinclair.
Sinclair helped earn Swansea promotion to the Premier League in 2011 when he scored a hat-trick against Reading in the Championship play-off final.
In 2012 he left for Manchester City but failed to make an impact at the Etihad and he went out on loan to West Brom and then Villa.
Villa signed him permanently for £2.5m last summer, and he has made 14 Premier League starts for them this season. Villa boss Remi Garde would not be drawn on the subject in his news conference on Friday.
Swansea are also interested in another former player - Liverpool's Joe Allen - but the Reds are not interested in letting him go this month.
Sky sources understand Swansea may try again in the summer.
