Here's your round-up of all the latest Swansea City news for Wednesday, May 22.

Langstaff move 'can't be ruled out'

Meanwhile, a move for Notts County striker Macaulay Langstaff could well be a possibility this summer.

Langstaff is a player well known to Luke Williams following the pair's time together with the Magpies, with the striker netting 29 goals for the League Two outfit last season.

And, according to the BBC, a move to south Wales is a real possibility. Indeed, the same report suggests Langstaff is one of several names of Swansea's list of potential targets this summer.

Twente join race for Driouech

FC Twente have reportedly joined the race to sign Excelsior forward Couhaib Driouech this summer.

Swansea City tried to snap up the 22-year-old back in January, only for the winger to turn down their advances. The Swans eventually opted to sign Brazilian forward Ronald instead, but it's understood Driouech remains a figure of interest in SA1.

However, a deal is looking increasingly difficult, with several big sides now seemingly throwing their hat in the ring.

Reports in the Netherlands now claim Twente have now joined giants PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord in the chase for the Moroccan youth international.

It remains to be seen whether Swansea will intensify their interest this summer, although Luke Williams is keen on adding more firepower to his squad over the coming weeks.

Williams - I have to be here

Luke Williams insists he will be a regular visitor to the club's Fairwood training ground this summer as he bids to ensure his side get the deals they need over the line.

“I’d be irresponsible if I did anything other than the maximum to try to be a good head coach for Swansea,” Williams told BBC Sport Wales.

“It’s too much of a privilege for me to be sitting in the sun. I have a garden. Maybe a couple of afternoons I can sit there with a cold beer.

“If there are players to watch, I will be jumping on a plane or going wherever I need to go.

“If that player wants to meet me and wants me to convince them, I need to be there, not at the pool bar.

“It’s a huge deal for a player to pick a club, so if they feel this club or this manager really wants me, that often is the thing that swings the decision. So I need to be present.” Sign up to our Swansea City newsletter here.

Clarke justifies big call as Barron misses out on Euro 2024

Scotland boss Steve Clarke insists Ryan Jack is worthy of a place in his 28-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 campaign, after choosing to overlook Swansea City target Connor Barron.

The omission of the in-form Aberdeen midfielder has sparked fierce debate in Scotland, with many supporters wondering whether Barron was more deserving of a place than the 32-year-old Rangers star.

"Experience. Ryan's been an important part of the squad in my time as head coach. He missed the last Euros," Clark said when quizzed on his decision.

"He hasn't had the best end to the season for Rangers but he's been fit the past two or three weeks. He deserves to be there. He's a midfield player that's a little bit different."
