Swansea manager Alan Curtis is keen to bolster his squad after allowing midfielder Jonjo Shelvey to join Newcastle on Wednesday for a fee Sky sources understand to be in the region of £12m. 

During his first spell with Swansea, De Guzman made 95 appearances and scored 16 times, playing a major role in the 2013 League Cup winning team.
