2 potential knock-on effects on Swansea if they strike Aston Villa player deal



Swansea City are thought to be interested in Aston Villa’s Conor Hourihane, as they try to bring the Irish international in on loan in this transfer window.

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that the Premier League side are now weighing up whether to sanction a switch for the 29-year-old, who has featured in just four top-flight games this season.

Given his experience, bringing Hourihane to Wales would be something of a coup for Steve Cooper, as the left-footer has proven himself at this level over the years.

Here we look at TWO knock-on effects signing Hourihane would have on Swansea…

1 of 10

Both clubs have played in the Premier League in the past five years.

They score more goals

27 goals in 23 games is not the best record, with Swansea’s excellent defence the reason for their brilliant start.

Even though Hourihane is a midfielder, he would give the Swans a much-needed extra goals threat. He hit 19 goals for Villa across two seasons, which is a very good return.

As well as that, the former Barnsley man will create plenty of opportunities for others with his passing ability, and particularly with his quality from set-pieces.

They win promotion

Following on from that, he could be the difference in helping the Swans to win promotion.

They are in a great position right now, and we’ve already outlines the influence he could have on the team on the pitch.

Additionally, his mentality and experience of winning promotion in the past could be crucial to helping those in the dressing room as they approach what will be a high-pressure stage of the campaign.
