Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Great Britain 2012 manager Stuart Pearce has contacted the Welsh outfit over the availability of players for the London Games team.

Rodgers said: "I've been contacted with regards to the players."

English winger Scott Sinclair, Welsh midfielder Joe Allen and his defender countrymen Neil Taylor and Jazz Richards would fit the selection criteria.
