Exclusive: Swansea attacker lined up for Euro side reunion, Cooper may be forced to sell

Swansea City forward Liam Cullen is a loan target for Cypriot First Division side Pafos this month, Football Insider understands.

The promising attacker has been lined up for a reunion at the European outfit as former Swansea Under-23s boss Cameron Toshack now the manager at the club.

A source at the Liberty Stadium has told Football Insider that the 20-year-old is some way down the pecking order under Steve Cooper and he could leave this month in order to get regular first-team football.

It is understood that Toshack is keen to be reunited with Cullen having worked with him during his time in charge of the Swans’ under-23 side and he is a big admirer of the forward.

Cullen is Swansea’s top scorer at Under-23 level with eight goals in 15 games in the Premier League 2, including a hat-trick in Monday’s win over Middlesbrough.

Despite his goalscoring exploits for the development side Cullen continues to find himself out of Cooper’s first-team plans and the recent arrival of Rhian Brewster has increased competition for places in attack.

The promising talent, who has come through the ranks at Swansea, has made only one first-team appearance for the club, coming back in 2018 as a substitute in a League Cup clash with Crystal Palace.

Cooper may be forced to sell Cullen as he is into the final six months of his contract at the Liberty Stadium and this window offers the last opportunity to secure a sizeable fee if new deal is not agreed.

Pafos are currently third from bottom of the Cypriot First Division and Toshack is keen to bolster his squad as he looks to lead them to safety in the second half of the season.
