Swansea City are set to sign Slovenian defender Matic Paljk.

The 20-year-old full-back is able to join outside the transfer window because he is a free agent having parted company with his former club in Slovenia, FC Koper.

Paljk recently had a trial with the Swans' Under-23 side.

Paperwork is due to be completed this week with the player expected to initially feature for Swansea's Under-23s rather than the first team.
