Swansea are considering tabling a season-long loan offer to Chelsea for attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer, Sky sources understand.

The former England U21 international spent last season on loan at Blackburn and Bristol City, making a combined 34 appearances for both sides.

Palmer is currently on Chelsea's pre-season tour to Ireland and was not one of the eight players that returned to the club's Cobham training base ahead of potential loan moves away this season.

The 22-year-old, who previously had two loan spells at Huddersfield and one at Derby, played junior football at Charlton before joining Chelsea's academy at the age of nine.

Palmer has been a regular member of England's youth sides in recent years and is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2021.
