Sale announcement expected
John Hollins' striker search goes to Argentina
John Hollins' striker search goes to Argentina
The speculation surrounding the sale of Swansea City could be over within the next week.

Managing director Mike Lewis told the club's official website on Friday that owners Ninth Floor plc would make an announcement within a week.

Swansea were put up for sale in February this year after Ninth Floor announced a pre-tax loss of 797,000 in its half-yearly report.

John Hollins' side endured a poor campaign last season and were relegated from division two, just a year after winning the third division.

But the quest to bring new blood to the Vetch is picking up steam as the new season approaches.

Two Argentine strikers - Nicolas Mazzina and Marcos Lencina - joined up with the squad on Friday.

Mazzina, 22, has represented Argentina at under-23 level and came through the Boca Juniors youth scheme.

Lencina, 28, a former Argentina under-21 international comes from Argentine second division side Douglas Haig.

Both are expected to play a part, along with French trialist Mamody Sidibe, in Saturday's friendly against Barry Town.
