Swansea City are being linked with a shock deal for unhappy Barcelona striker David Villa.

Betting odds have plunged on the prospect of the deal, with Sky Bet cutting from 40/1 to even-money of Swansea pulling off the shock move.

Villa is being linked with a three-month loan move to Swansea after struggling for regular first team football at Barca since returning from a broken leg this season.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup is a former Barca player and teammate of their sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta.
