Konstantopoulos returns to Swans

Dimi Konstantopoulos has been a long-term target for Swansea

Coventry City goalkeeper Dimitrios Konstantopoulos is set to return to Swansea City on loan.

The Greek stopper was recalled by Coventry last Friday to cover injuries but Sky Blues boss Chris Coleman has agreed him to go back to Swansea.

Konstantopoulos, who initially signed for the Swans in October, is due to report for Swansea training on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old saved a late penalty on his debut and has since played five times for the Championship new boys.

The 29-year-old had been signed as a back-up for injured keeper Dorus de Vries after he suffered a fractured jaw and cheekbone.

De Vries has now returned to the Swansea side but Swans boss Roberto Martinez wants Konstantopoulos back at the Liberty Stadium as keeping cover.
