Swansea City are closing in on a deal to sign Hannes Wolf on loan from Borussia Mönchengladbach.
The attacking midfielder has been told he can leave the German club in pursuit of regular football.
On Wolf, Mönchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl recently said: “Something might happen in the next few days. We’ll see when the time comes.”
The club were concerned over visa issues for the Austrian attacker earlier this week.
But they are now hopeful of concluding a loan deal for the 22-year-old before Saturday’s Championship clash with Preston North End.
He is set to become the Swans’ third January signing following the arrivals of Andy Fisher and Cyrus Christie from MK Dons and Fulham respectively.
