Swansea are in the market for a new left-back after selling Ben Davies to Tottenham earlier this summer.

Highly-rated full-back Kolodziejczak has been linked with a move to England all summer with the likes of West Ham, Queens Park Rangers and Southampton all credited with an interest in the 22-year-old.

Bordeaux and St Etienne are also chasing Kolodziejczak, with Nice resigned to losing the former France Under-20 international.

Kolodziejczak has been left out of Nice's squad for this weekend's opening Ligue 1 game with Toulouse as coach Claude Puel feels he is not in the right frame of mind of play as speculation surrounds a possible move before the close of the transfer window.

"He is waiting for a departure, but as long as there is nothing definitive, we will see what we can do," said Puel.

"He has expectation, but he is still a Nice player so far."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
