SWANSEA City are being linked with a move for teenage striker Moussa Konate as Middlesbrough failed in a shock deadline-day move for Danny Graham.

Senegalese international Konate is being touted as a potential loan signing for Swansea as they seek to replace Graham, who looks set to leave the Liberty Stadium today.

Formerly at Maccabi Tel Aviv, Konate moved to Russian club FC Krasnodar after impressing at last summer's Olympics.

The 19-year-old frontman scored five goals at the London Games — including one against Great Britain at Old Trafford — and moved to Russia in a deal worth around 2 million euros.

He claimed then that he has rejected a possible move to the Premier League, but it now seems he could be on his way to English football.

Graham, meantime, is still thought most likely to join Sunderland today despite late interest from Boro, the club where he learned his trade.

Reports this morning suggest Swansea have agreed a fee of £5 million with Boro for the 27-year-old frontman.

But the player's agent very quickly ruled out the idea of Graham moving to the Riverside.

    Good luck to Danny Graham wherever he goes. But I am sure many swans supporters are wondering why would anyone want to leave Swansea for Middlesborough or Sunderland. I know he comes from that part of the world and would probably play more often, but Swansea is a far superior club in terms of style, management, success and potential. As a player, you always want to be the best you can be: where would he learn more, Sunderland with Martin O'Neill or here with Michael Laudrup? Stick with it Danny, we all want you to stay a Jack, at least for the CapitalOne cup final
