Swans In For Former Sunderland & Leeds Defender?
Monday, 30th Jun 2008 07:52
Swansea, Watford and Leicester are being linked with a move for former Sunderland defender Ian Harte.
The former Republic of Ireland international was released by the Black Cats at the end of last season after eight appearances for them in the Premier League.
He was snapped up last summer from Spanish side Levante - who played a pre-season friendly at the Liberty twelve months back – and has also played for Leeds.
Despite being around for what seems an eternity Harte is only 30 years old and has over 300 club appearances to his name including well over 200 at the highest level in England. Couple that with 64 caps for his country and you have experience that the Swans have stated that they need.
The question mark over Harte I guess would remain the simple fact that he has made just 32 club appearances in the four years since he left Elland Road.
None of the three clubs linked are reported to have made an official approach to the player.
