The Swans are in the market to do business before the window closes and they are raiding a Premier League side for an option.
Chelsea defender Humphreys is the man that Swansea want to sign and they look set to be successful.
Humphreys has given the green light to a move to Swansea and is happy to spend the season in the Championship with the Welsh outfit.
The 20-year-old had a loan stint in Germany with Paderborn during the second half of last season, playing in the German second tier.
Chelsea will be looking to see him play on a regular basis for Swansea.
Humphreys is a product of Chelsea’s esteemed youth system and has been capped by England at multiple youth levels.
The defender will add to Michael Duff’s options at the back at Swansea.
