Swansea close in on Tom Carroll and Martin Olsson signings
Tom Carroll is expected to join Swansea City from Tottenham for around £4.5m, with the Norwich left-back Martin Olsson also set to arrive in south Wales to bolster their defence.
Carroll, who spent the 2014-15 season on loan at the Liberty Stadium, has rarely featured for Tottenham this season having made just three appearances in all competitions. He was due for a medical on Monday after agreeing personal terms with Swansea, with the product of Spurs’ academy likely to complete his move this week and become Paul Clement’s second signing since he took over from Bob Bradley.
Having already added the Holland winger Luciano Narsingh from PSV Eindhoven last week, Clement is looking to improve his squad after the 4-1 home defeat to Arsenal on Saturday which left his new side bottom of the Premier League. The former Derby County manager confirmed last week that the addition of Carroll and Olsson were imminent, with the Sweden international expected to cost £4m.
