Bartley, who spent last season on loan at Leeds United, signed a new contract in August and has featured in all three of Swansea's games so far in 2017-18.

Earlier on Thursday, the Premier League club confirmed the signing of defender Jack Bainbridge on a free transfer.

The 19-year-old, who joins on a one-year deal after leaving Everton, will play for the Under-23 side.
