Premier League strugglers Swansea City are set to sign defender Martin Olsson from Norwich and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll.

Manager Paul Clement said only the paperwork is left to complete the duo's arrival at the Liberty Stadium.

Olsson will arrive after Neil Taylor was ruled out for at least three weeks with a fractured cheekbone.

Olsson is valued at £4m with Carroll poised to return to Liberty Stadium early next week in a £4.5m deal.

Manager Paul Clement saw his side lose 4-0 to Arsenal in his first home match in charge.

Afterwards he said of his view on signings for the relegation-threatened club were "the same and maybe even reinforced" by the defeat to the Gunners.

He added: "The Carroll signing is very close. Pending a medical and paperwork, it will go through. Same with Olsson."

Wales international left-back Taylor suffered the injury in training on Wednesday and requires an operation.

Carroll spent the 2014-15 season on loan at Swansea and he and Olsson were in south Wales on Friday as talks progressed.

In midweek Clement said Taylor was "probably" facing three weeks of non-contact training and will "have to be fitted out with a face mask".

Clement said there was "no news," on outgoings, after fellow left-back Stephen Kingsley was linked with a loan move to Norwich City.
