Swansea City in Talks With Seattle Sounders Over Jordan Morris Loan Move

Swansea City are looking to bolster their attacking options and are in talks with Seattle Sounders over a move for Jordan Morris, according to reports.

The Swans are hopeful that the USA international can help the club secure promotion back to the Premier League after their relegation in 2018.

Jordan Morris Attracting Plenty of Interest in Europe

Although the deal is reportedly set to be a six-month loan deal, the arrival of Morris would be a major coup for Swansea City.

The 26-year-old has attracted interest from the Bundesliga, according to reports by Mike McGrath. The USA international had previously trained with Werder Bremen in 2016 but opted to remain in the MLS.

Now though, the forward is looking for a move to Europe and it appears the Swans are leading the race to sign the USA international.

Attacking Options for Swansea

With a move for Crawley Town striker Max Watters looking likely to be hijacked by Welsh rivals Cardiff City, Swans boss Steve Cooper is still looking for attacking options.

Having made his international debut in 2014, the winger has scored ten goals from his 39 appearances for the USA.

Domestically, Morris has scored 42 times and added 21 assists from 129 Seattle Sounders appearances. The left-winger, who can also play both centrally and on the right, has also won two MLS Cups with the club in 2016 and 2019, but lost in last year’s final to Columbus Crew.

Swansea City Promotion Push

Currently, Swansea City sit second in the Championship, just four points behind leaders Norwich City.

Cooper’s side are unbeaten in their last four league games and are serious contenders for a return to the top flight.
