Swansea make move to sign Tottenham's Kyle Naughton

Swansea Liberty Stadium

The Swans are hoping to do business with Spurs again as they step up their interest in right-back Kyle Naughton.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has already joined Swansea from Spurs, with Michel Vorm and Ben Davies heading the other way to White Hart Lane, and Gary Monk is hoping to do business again by bringing in Kyle Naughton before the new season gets underway.

The 25-year-old joined Spurs in 2009 in a move from Sheffield United that also saw Kyle Walker join The Lilywhites and Naughton has struggled to edge out the England right-back for a regular starting role.

Naughton has made just 30 Premier League appearances with Spurs since making the switch five years ago, and may now be ready to move elsewhere in search of regular action.

He had a good run in the side under Tim Sherwood last term as Walker struggled with an injury that ultimately ruled him out of the World Cup, though with the first-choice right-back back in action, Naughton's chances will surely now be limited once again.

He has been used at left-back on several occasions, though Ben Davies' arrival from The Swans will surely see Naughton feature little under Pochettino in the upcoming campaign.

Danny Rose is reportedly set to sign a new contract at the club despite the arrival of Davies, and Naughton may be keen on a switch to South Wales to join Swansea.

He would challenge Angel Rangel for a starting spot in Gary Monk's side but could also play at left-back in a move that would add depth to the Swansea backline.

Rangel has been at Swansea since 2007 and will likely remain a regular in the side this season, and he outperformed Naughton in some key areas last season.

The Englishman could therefore find himself playing at left-back to replace Ben Davies if he makes the switch to The Swans.

Swansea are believed to have made a formal enquiry for Naughton, though it remains to be seen whether Tottenham are willing to let the right-back leave this season, as they would have to find a replacement to challenge Walker for a starting spot.

Would Naughton be a good signing for Swansea?
