One of the Swans transfer targets of the summer appears to be out of reach now with the news that Jimmy Dunne is about to sign for QPR.
It has been a busy 24 hors at Loftus Road with Dunne set to follow hot on the heels of Sam McCallum who has joined on a season-long loan from Norwich City.
The Swans had targeted Dunne to add some extra strength in depth to a defence that lost Marc Guehi at the end of last season when his loan ended and he returned to Chelsea.
However, he is now reported as undergoing a medical at QPR leaving the Swans needing to look elsewhere for defensive resources.
Dunne rose through the ranks at Man United’s academy before joining Burnley in 2017.
He has spent time out on loan with Barrow, Accrington Stanley, Hearts, Sunderland and Fleetwood Town since signing for Sean Dyche’s side.
The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 made his senior debut for Burnley in the League Cup against Sheffield United last September.
