SWANSEA City have expressed an interest Jack Cork - but have been warned off the midfielder by Southampton.
Swansea have tracked the former England Under-21 international since his days as a youngster at Chelsea.
They made a move to bring him to Wales during Brendan Rodgers's time in charge, and it has now emerged they have made another enquiry this month.
There are suggestions Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins is prepared to pay as much as £3 million for Cork, who has struggled for regular game-time this season.
But the 24-year-old impressed in Southampton's 2-2 draw with Arsenal this week and the Saints seem unwilling to sell.
