Swansea City manager Garry Monk has admitted that he would like to sign midfielder Jonathan de Guzman this summer after he returns from the World Cup, BBC Sport is reporting.

The 26-year-old, who is currently at the World Cup with the Netherlands, has spent the previous two seasons on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Villarreal, making a reasonable impression and scoring in the final as Swansea won the Capital One Cup in 2013. Overall, he has found the net 15 times in 93 appearances.

Several other clubs are tracking de Guzman, but Monk is hopeful he can convince the player to return to South Wales. He said: "He's done well for us in the past and he's somebody that we are definitely looking at. Behind the scenes we are talking to his agent and monitoring the situation.

"With the player himself, I don't want to bombard him with phone calls and texts. I want him to concentrate on what they [Netherlands] are doing because they are doing well. We will be competing with other teams, but we'll have to see where the chips lie whenever they are knocked out or if they win it."

Monk also went on to claim that his club have not received any offers for forward Miguel Michu, despite reports linking him with a move to Napoli.
