Chelsea playmaker Josh McEachran is reportedly keen on a loan switch to Swansea City.

Swansea City are reportedly closing in on bringing Chelsea teenager Josh McEachran in on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old, who picked up an ankle injury in the Blues' Carling Cup quarter-final defeat to Liverpool last month, has failed to secure a regular spot in Andre Villas-Boas's side.

While Bolton Wanderers, Fulham and Aston Villa are all believed to be interested in the midfielder, Swansea are the favourites to land the teen, according to The Express.

It is thought that McEachran is leaning towards the Liberty Stadium due to the Swans' style of football.
