Promotion chasing Swansea City have intensified their interest in Bristol City midfielder Kasey Palmer.

Swansea City Contact Ramp Up Kasey Palmer Interest

Championship Rivals

WalesOnline report that the Swans have formally contacted Bristol City in order to enquire about taking Palmer on loan.

The move could materialise with Palmer being increasingly frustrated with the lack of opportunities at Ashton Gate.

A report BristolLive claims Palmer’s relationship with boss Lee Johnson has worsened in recent weeks; the midfielder was excluded from the matchday squad for the 4-0 defeat to Brentford on Wednesday.

Palmer has now missed out on being included in the last three matchday squads.

WalesOnline continue to suggest that Swansea lead the queue for Palmer; however, Crystal Palace are understood to have no enquired and there is also reported interest from overseas in Germany.

23-year-old Palmer was heavily linked with a move to Swansea City over the summer; although, a move fell through with the Swans failing to offer a permanent deal.

Bristol City appear to have softened their stance; however, it’s unknown whether the Robins would allow Palmer to depart for a Championship rival.

Potential to Remain at Ashton Gate

Johnson, seemingly suggested Palmer is still in his first-team plans, he recently said: “I think Kasey’s got a challenge – his challenge is to keep the shirt and nobody dislikes Kasey Palmer, we signed him because we believe in him, we still do believe in him.”

“I thought he was outstanding in the first five or six games and a little bit of that coincided with the duo of Benik Afobe and Kasey Palmer and they struck up a rapport on and off the pitch and then Benik got injured.

“Kasey had a couple of bad performances, didn’t do enough, simply or didn’t have the right balance around him and I think that it’s an important time for Kasey now mentally because he’s always had the mothership of Chelsea to call him back and my challenge to him is to not have a repeated pattern where the grass is always greener somewhere else.

“It’s now time to, exactly what we said before, dig in and make sure that he comes through because he’s a talented individual and he’s a player that we’re desperate to do well.”
