Swansea bring in Hungary centre-back Liptak
Published 19:32 21/09/11 By MirrorFootball
Swansea have brought Hungary international Zoltan Liptak in on trial as manager Brendan Rodgers looks to strengthen his defensive resources.
Rodgers has only two fit centre-halves, captain Garry Monk and Ashley Williams, at the moment.
Alan Tate and Steven Caulker are facing lengthy injury absences while FIFA denied the Swans international clearance to bring in Darnel Situ from French side Lens and Fulham's Rafik Halliche, although the club may yet appeal that decision.
Liptak is 26 and has 10 caps to his name - including a clash with England at Wembley last year.
He is available on a free transfer after leaving Hungarian club Videoton, who are currently managed by former Swansea boss Paulo Sousa.
The former Southend, Southampton and Stevenage man trained with Swansea yesterday and today as Rodgers looks to move closer to a possible deal.
A statement on the Swansea website said: "Swansea City can confirm the club is running the rule over Hungarian international Zoltan Liptak."
