Swansea in talks with Villarreal's Marcos Senna

The Euro 2008 winner has held preliminary talks with the Welsh club, who are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of a first Premier League campaign
Premier League new boys Swansea City are in talks to complete a sensational swoop for Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna.

The Brazilian-born holding player, who featured for Spain in their Euro 2008 victory, is out of contract this summer and looks set to leave El Madrigal.

Swansea are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of their maiden Premier League campaign.

The club are in search for a replacement for central midfielder Darren Pratley who confirmed this week that he will leave the Welsh club on a free transfer at the end of the month.

Senna's representative Ely Coimbra has confirmed that his client is currently considering an offer made by Swansea.

"Marcus 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," Coimbra told the Western Mail.

"Marcus 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 in preliminary talks."

"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 made 20 La Liga appearances last season, scoring one goal in an injury-blighted campaign. The 34-year-old joined Villarreal in 2002 for €600,000 from Brazilian club Sao Caetano.
