Swansea manager Bob Bradley has revealed he is keeping an eye on Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll ahead of the January transfer window.
The emergence of highly-rated Harry Winks has only sent Carroll further down the Spurs pecking order, despite him signing a contract to keep him at the club until 2019 in September, and it appears that Bradley is confident a deal can be struck with Tottenham, though he did maintain that there were other names under consideration at the Liberty Stadium.
The new Swansea manager has made no secret of his desire to add to a squad shorn of Ashley Williams and Andre Ayew in the summer and offered a positive assessment of what Carroll could bring to his side.
“Tom is a player who everyone here knows,” Bradley said. “He’s been around in the past, he’s certainly a good footballer and he’s a player who has been discussed.
“Every player that appears on the table also then gets looked at in comparison to with other players, guys bring different pluses. What Tom brings as a footballer is he is technically sharp, a good passer, and those are qualities a team can use.
“We just have to look at how those attributes compare with other players who pop up.”
