Goalkeeper Oliver Davies has joined Kilmarnock on loan until January as the Swans continue the work that sets up their squad for the new season both at first team and Under-21 level.
The 20 year old goalkeeper will head North of the border to try and get the experience of first team football behind him and remains highly rated by the Swans.
Kilmarnock manager Gary Locke said "Billy Thomson spotted Oliver and was immediately impressed by him. We were very grateful Swansea kindly agreed to loan us Oliver as it was important that Conor (Brennan) was able to stay out on loan to Stranraer, gaining first-team experience.
"Oliver coming in gives us cover for Jamie (MacDonald), and with Devlin (Mackay) doing well in the Development Squad we now have a good mix of experience at the club"
The young 'keeper has been a regular for the Swans U21 side and is likely to provide cover for Kilmarnock’s first-choice keeper Jamie MacDonald.
Davies said: "This is my first time in Scotland and I am really looking forward to training here and being a part of the Killie team."
“I have watched a lot of Scottish football and I know how competitive the Ladbrokes Premiership is. I know if I work hard I will gain good experience from my time here."
