Villareal midfielder Marcos Senna is considering a move to Swansea City this Summer after holding talks with manager Brendan Rodgers.

Senna’s representative Ely Coimbra said a move to Swansea City is an attractive one:

“Marcos Senna had a previous conversation by phone with Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers and that made him very proud and honoured with the possible interest of Swansea to have him in the squad for the Premier League.

“Marcos is very happy with the possibility and of course keen to play Premier League football, but we want to make very clear that we are right now on preliminary contacts.

“But of course Swansea City can be a very attractive option, since Mr Rodgers explained to Marcos his ideas about his team and part of Swansea`s project – which pleased him a lot – and obviously because of the nice and vibrant city of Swansea.”


Senna is 35 next month so he would be a short term option for Rodgers’ squad, but he has plenty of experience playing in Spain’s top division La Liga.

He won the European Championship with Spain in 2008 and was also La Liga Player of the year.

Swansea City would surely face tough competition though for his services as he is out of contract with Villareal this Summer.
