Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has confirmed the club are in talks with Swansea City over a loan deal for David Ngog.

Reports on Wednesday suggested the Swans were interested in taking the former Liverpool forward to the Liberty Stadium, with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the campaign - when the player's contract expires.

Speaking on Thursday afternoon, Freedman revealed these rumours were true and that chairman Phil Gartside was in negotiations with the Premier League side to see if a deal could be struck.

"Swansea have enquired about his availability," Freedman told The Bolton News. "The chairman is discussing the possibility right now.

"Where the deal is at I can't say right now because the call only came in last night but we have discussed with David the possibility.

"But again, it's possibilities. I have been here too many times - both incoming and outgoing - to regard it as anything else but talk."

Ngog has scored three goals in his last four appearances for Bolton, but his overall record isn't quite so good - with just 16 goals in 90 games since a £4million move from Liverpool in the summer of 2011.
