Ghana's No. 1

Swansea set to sign USA's Morris on loan

Published on: 17 January 2021

Forward Jordan Morris has scored 11 goals in his last 25 appearances for Seattle Sounders

Swansea City are close to signing USA forward Jordan Morris on loan.

The Championship club hope a deal which will see the 26-year-old Seattle Sounders player join until the end of the season will be completed this week.

Morris, who is known for his pace and can play in either a wide or central attacking role, has scored 10 goals in 39 international appearances.

Swansea are also interested in a loan deal for Aston Villa's Republic of Ireland midfielder Conor Hourihane.

Boss Steve Cooper has seen attacking midfielders Kasey Palmer and Morgan Gibbs-White recalled by parent clubs Bristol City and Wolverhampton Wanderers in recent weeks, while on-loan striker Viktor Gyokeres returned to Brighton before switching to Coventry City.

Morris has been a regular goalscorer for Seattle and was shortlisted as one of US Soccer's players of the year in 2020.

He has previously spoken of his ambition to move to Europe.

Hourihane, meanwhile, would also be an attractive option for a Swansea side looking to return to the Premier League following relegation in 2018.

The 29-year-old former Barnsley captain, who reached the top flight with Villa in 2019, has made four league appearances this season but has not played since starting in the 2-1 defeat to West Ham at the end of November.
