Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers will this week run the rule over Dundee United striker Francisco Sandaza.

The Spaniard will train with the npower Championship club as Rodgers looks to boost his options in the final third with forwards Craig Beattie and Gorka Pintado in the treatment room.

Sandaza signed for Dundee United from Valencia, where he spent a total of six years, back in July 2008 on a three-year deal.

However, injury problems and a resulting struggle with fitness have restricted the 26-year-old`s first-team opportunities at Tannadice.

Sandaza, who has a year remaining on his contract, has made a total of 43 appearances for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League side, scoring 11 goals.
