Swansea secure Duffy from Pompey
Richard Duffy
Duffy has made just two appearances for Portsmouth
Swansea City have signed Portsmouth defender Richard Duffy on loan until the end of the season.

Wales right-back Duffy left the Swans for Pompey three years ago for 150,000, but the 21-year-old has failed to break into the first team.

Duffy spent last season on loan at Coventry, and returned to the Sky Blues in October for a further two months.

"Richard's a versatile player who can operate anywhere across the back four," said Swansea manager Kenny Jackett.

"He's an out-and-out defender who is very competitive."

Duffy has been suffering with a slight groin strain, but goes straight into the squad for Saturday's trip to Bradford City.

Duffy, who has won 11 caps for Wales, made his professional debut for Swansea as a 16-year-old in 2001.

He agreed a new deal with Portsmouth in March, but has since made just one appearance for the club in a Carling Cup match in September.

  • Swansea's postponed FAW Premier Cup quarter-final at Port Talbot has been rearranged for Monday, 15 January (1900 GMT).
