The versatile 22-year-old, who can play at either full-back position or in midfield, will go straight into Mark Robins' squad for Saturday's home derby against Doncaster.

Town boss Robins has moved quickly to draft in cover for right-back Jack Hunt, who joined Crystal Palace for a reported £2million fee on transfer deadline day.

"With Jack Hunt's departure and the recent injury that Calum Woods has suffered, we were looking to increase our options in that area of the pitch and Jazz is exactly the type of player we have here at the club," Robins told the club's official website.

"He is young, but has good experience of the Championship with Swansea and last season's loan at Crystal Palace, and now he's hungry for more.

"Swansea play good passing football and he fits the mould when it comes to playing in our side.

"He has a lot of quality both technically and physically and we're delighted to have him at the club."

Richards is a product of the Swansea academy and made his debut for the Welsh club as an 18-year-old against Middlesbrough in 2009.

He has made over 35 first-team appearances for Swansea and featured on 11 occasions for Crystal Palace while on loan there at the back end of last season.

The Swansea-born defender made his senior debut for Wales in a 2-0 defeat to Mexico in New Jersey in May 2012.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
