Swansea want McEachran

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed his interest in Chelsea youngster Josh McEachran, should the Blues decide to make the midfielder available for loan.

Rodgers, who worked as youth and reserve team coach at Stamford Bridge under former manager Jose Mourinho, has been linked with returning to his former club for McEachran, 18, and while he has not held detailed discussions with Chelsea, he would be keen to bring McEachran to the Liberty Stadium in January.

Rodgers said: "I need to have a conversation at length (with Chelsea),'' he said. Josh is not playing at the moment, he is on the bench, although he played (against Everton) last night.

"He is a wonderful talent and the positive thing is that clubs see Swansea as a club that can develop such talents. He has a big future, he played in the same team as my son right through the system at Chelsea and has kicked on since he turned 14.

"He has got great vision, he is a terrific footballer and he needs to play in a certain system.

"I think (Chelsea manager) Andre (Villas-Boas) and (sporting director) Michael Emenolo understand he will need to get some games and when that moment comes he is certainly a player who would do terrific here.''

But Rodgers does not believe Swansea would be favourites to seal a loan move for the England Under-21 international, despite his links with the club.

"All we can do is our best, we try to be in the market for the very best players. We don't have the finances to buy such players but if it allows us to loan players then I would be confident in what we could give such a player.''
