Swansea City are looking to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Tom Carroll for £8 million, according to The Telegraph.

The 24-year-old started his career in Spurs’ youth academy and made his debut for the senior side against Heart of Midlothian in the Europa League in 2011.

The midfielder has had four loan moves since moving into the first-team squad, including a two-month spell at the Swans in 2014.

Carroll has represented England at both under-19 and 21 levels, making 17 appearances and scoring 2 goals for the latter.

The Englishman has only played three times under Mauricio Pochettino this season, with two of these coming in the League Cup.

New Swansea manager Paul Clement is looking to offer him a way out of the London side, as he needs to strengthen his squad to improve their chances of survival.

The Welsh side are currently in the relegation zone, in 19th place with 15 points, below Sunderland on goal difference.

Having impressed on his loan spell there two years ago, if Swansea make a firm offer for Carroll, the midfielder may find it hard to turn down the chance of regular football at a team he has fitted in well at before.
