Swans take Painter on loan deal
Marcos Painter
Painter provides cover for the injured Tom Williams
Swansea City have agreed a month-long loan deal for Birmingham City defender Marcos Painter.

The 20-year-old Republic Of Ireland Under-21 international can play at left-back or centre-half.

He will cover for Swansea's regular left-back Tom Williams, out for at least a month after a hernia operation.

Sutton Coldfield-man Painter, from the St Andrew's academy system, signed a new three-year deal in the summer, but has only played twice this season.

"We've watched him a lot, he's a very good defender with a fine left foot," Swansea manager Kenny Jackett told BBC Sport Wales.

"It shows our standing as a club that a player like him is willing to come to us."
