Nathan Dyer has emerged as the player who could ease the financial pressure at Southampton - if he completes a permanent switch to Swansea.
The 21-year-old winger has been on loan at the Liberty Stadium since January, and his transfer could help shore up the finances at St Mary's and give the administrators more time to find a buyer for the ailing club.
Swans manager Roberto Martinez is keen to land Dyer on a permanent basis, and recently said: "It's a difficult situation with Nathan because we were in contact with the old chairman and now it's the administrator."
He added: "But we want to keep him and he wants to stay. We have Nathan on loan until the end of the season anyway. And we will keep fighting to reach an agreement for a permanent deal."
Saints reportedly want around Â£500,000 for the pacy wideman.
