Norwich City full-back Martin Olsson wanted to join Premier League Swansea during the January transfer window, according to his agent.

The Canaries had an enquiry from the Welsh club which was not followed up, and the 26-year-old ended up being part of the failed deal to bring Graham Dorrans from West Bromwich Albion to Carrow Road.

Olsson's agent, Hasan Cetinkaya, told Fotbollskanalen.se: 'The player wanted to join Swansea, but the club failed to make an offer.

'West Bromwich agreed to pay the asking price demanded by Norwich, but we were not happy with the contract offered to the player.'
