Why Swansea should beat others in signature of Kyle Dempsey
According to a report in Wales Online, Swansea City are one of the few clubs interested in signing Fleetwood Town midfielder Kyle Dempsey during the January transfer window.
Along with the Swans, their Championship rivals Derby County and Huddersfield Town are also in the race to sign the 24-year-old, who has already delivered some eye-catching performances so far this season. (h/t Wales Online)

On the other hand, Swansea, after making a good start to their campaign, have been on the downward spiral in the last few weeks. They could do with more addition to their squad, especially in the midfield.
Here’s why they should beat others in the race to sign Dempsey:
Dempsey would add more dynamism to the midfield
Kyle Dempsey is a quality central midfield player, who prefers to play the box-to-box role but is capable of operating as an attacking midfielder or as a wide midfielder in a flat midfield formation.
In terms of his attributes, the 24-year-old possesses a good turn of pace on the ball to drive past people. He is a good passer of the ball, is physically strong on/off the ball and dribbles past players very well.
Furthermore, the Fleetwood man isn’t bad when it comes to being involved in the game without possession. He is always on the move to close down people and help the team win back possession as soon as possible.
If Swansea manage to sign him, they would have a player to add more dynamism to their midfield.
