Swansea trial for Dundee Utd striker Francisco Sandaza

Francisco Sandaza needed a hernia operation last season

Swansea City have taken Dundee United's Spanish striker Francisco Sandaza on a week's trial.

Boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring in a new striker as Craig Beattie and Gorka Pintado are both injured, leaving just Stephen Dobbie and Shefki Kuqi.

Sandaza, 26, is in the last year of his contract, but suffered last season with hernia problems.

He has scored 11 goals in 38 league appearances since joining United from Valencia in July 2008.

But Sandaza spent most of his six years with the La Liga side playing for the reserve team Valencia Mestalla, and scored 23 goals in his last season as they were promoted to the Segunda Division.
