"Josh McEachran is at the centre of a tug-of-war between Aston Villa and Swansea City.
The 18-year-old Chelsea playmaker is being courted by Alex McLeish and Brendan Rodgers and is likely to make his mind up before the weekend as to where he will be sent on loan.
McLeish is desperate for added guile in a midfield that has been exposed as Villa's weakness this season.

Rodgers knows the England Under 21 international from his time spent as reserve team manager at Stamford Bridge.
McEachran has made just a handful of appearances this season but is tipped for a bright future and signed a five-year deal in the summer.
The youngster had also been linked with Bolton after Blues striker Daniel Sturridge and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere had successful spells at the Reebok Stadium in the last couple of seasons.
