Swansea City are set to hold talks with out-of-contract Barnsley midfielder Hugo Colace.

The 26-year-old Argentine, who was named the Tykes player of the year, has turned down a new deal at Oakwell.

"We are hoping for him to come and see us next week," said Swans chairman Huw Jenkins.

"There's a list of players we've put together over the last few weeks and our head scout [David Leadbeater] has been working on that."

Former Argentina Under-20 captain Colace scored eight goals in 45 appearances for the Tykes last season, playing 80 times in total since his arrival from Newell's Old Boys in Argentina.

He has also featured for Argentinos Juniors and Estudiantes and had a spell in Brazil with Flamengo.

Should Swansea capture Colace's signature, he will be the club's third summer signing following the arrivals of midfielder Scott Donnelly from Aldershot and Wrexham defender Neil Taylor.

The Swans have however lost the services of star midfielder Leon Britton to Sheffield United and defender Fede Bessone to Leeds United. Both were out of contract.
