Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful of securing a deal to loan Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran for the rest of the season.

Having made just five appearances for The Blues this season, McEachran is in desperate need of some game time to assist his development.

And the newly promoted Swans appear ready to take on the England under-21 international under the end of the current campaign.

"He's an incredible passer of the ball," added Rodgers.

"And I know the England set-up have very high hopes for him as well.

"He's a kid who can create chances and has wonderful vision on the ball, he fits perfectly into our team."

Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping McEachran has the same success as striker Daniel Sturridge, who during his spell with Bolton Wanderers scored eight goals, momentum he's taken into the new season back at Stamford Bridge.

Further encouragement that McEschran can grow as a player following a succession of regular appearances comes in the shape of Jack Wilshere, another who spent time at the Reebok Stadium and who has since proved to be indispensable for club and country following his return to Arsenal.
