As the Barclays Premier League passes over the halfway mark, a team seemingly on the slide is Swansea City. 

The Capital One Cup victory last season seems a long time ago as the side from South Wales have slipped down to 15th in the league. The Europa League has taken it's toll on Michael Laudrup's small squad too, in similar fashion to Newcastle last season who struggled to meet the demands of the Premier League and European competitions. 

A look at the form guide has seen them pick up just one point from six games and that has led to the Dane bolstering his squad.

With star striker Michu out injured, David N'Gog has signed from Bolton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee which raised eyebrows not only in the Premier League, but in the Championship too. 

It was no secret that N'Gog struggled at the Trotters, scoring just 19 goals in 91 games. His spell at previous club Liverpool must have convinced Laudrup that he can be the man to fire Swansea to safety.
