David Ngog has travelled to South Wales and is expected to sign for Swansea City, according to Bolton boss Dougie Freedman.

Reports on Wednesday suggested the Swans were interested in taking the 24-year-old to the Liberty Stadium, a rumour which Freedman admitted was correct the following day.

Ngog was a notable absentee from Wanderers' FA Cup fourth round defeat to Cardiff City on Saturday and when quizzed about the Frenchman's omission from the squad, Freedman confirmed the player is likely to leave the Reebok Stadium in the next 48 hours.

"David Ngog is down in Swansea, talking to them right now," Freedman told the club's official YouTube channel.

"David has been a good player for us but the lure of Premier League football, hopefully, for him, will enough to make him go there and we will then have a little bit of money to try and get one or two loans in - and the right type of loans.

"I don't envisage spending a lot of money in the transfer market and buying players. If something becomes available and there's an opportunity there, I'll go up to the boardroom and tell them what it is.

"I think we'll look at one or two loans and it'll give me and the coaching staff the opportunity to not only help the players, but help the place around in general.

"When the loan players have come in, in the past, they have dramatically changed our season and that's what I'm looking forward to.

"We have lined up three or four players and you need a little bit of luck at the right time to get one of them, maybe two of them in. If we can get two of them in before QPR, that will be fantastic."
