Swansea City are interested in making a potential loan move for Sheffield United full-back Max Lowe before the transfer window comes to a close, according to The Sun on Sunday (15/08/2021, p63).
It is believed by The Sun on Sunday (15/08/2021, p63) that Lowe is down the pecking order at Sheffield United this season following Slavisa Jokanovic’s appointment as manager.
That means that the Blades could potentially be willing to allow the former Derby County defender to make a temporary move away from Bramall Lane so that he can get regular game time this term.
Swansea City are thought to be interested in taking advantage of the defender’s current situation at Sheffield United and will look to make a potential loan move for the 24-year-old.

The report from by The Sun on Sunday (15/08/2021, p63) adds though that Lowe is currently expecting a child and that could potentially delay the loan deal from being completed.
Swansea are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they host Stoke City, in what could potentially be a tricky test for Russell Martin’s side.
This would be an excellent potential move for Swansea to make before the window closes, with Lowe a full-back that has proven Championship pedigree and was able to show a lot of quality during his performances for Derby County in the English second tier prior to his move to Sheffield United last summer.
Lowe is very comfortable in possession and can retain the ball under pressure from attacking players and that makes him the ideal option for Russell Martin to have within his squad for his possession-based style of play.
The 24-year-old should therefore be able to adapt perfectly well to what the new Swans boss is wanting his team to do in terms of their build-up play.
The 24-year-old is far too good to be sitting on the bench for Sheffield United this season and not getting much game time. Therefore, it would make perfect sense for all parties if he was to be allowed to make the move to Swansea this summer.
The defender offers tactical versatility in the sense that he can operate as a wing-back and also a full-back on either side of the defence. That would provide Martin with a wealth of extra options and also cover in the event of injuries to his other full-backs.
