Swansea and Hull in fight to sign Man Utd transfer target Malcolm Ebiowei on loan from Crystal Palace in January

SWANSEA are out to beat Hull to sign Crystal Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei on loan in January.

Ebiowei impressed Hull boss Liam Rosenior when he was in charge at Derby last term.

And the Eagles may send the 19-year-old out again to get some more game-time.

But Swansea are also keen and Ebiowei could line up alongside Swansea’s 16-year-old Aimar Govea, who is caught in a tug of war between Spain and Ecuador.

Both nations have called up the midfielder, who must decide which to play for.

Meanwhile, Palace keeper Sam Johnstone is out for up to two months with a back injury.

And that may halt Jack Butland’s loan exit plans.

Butland is back from a broken hand and could have been allowed out.

But is now likely to have to stay put to cover for Johnstone.

Butland picked up the injury against Manchester United in a pre-season friendly.

Bournemouth were lining up to sign him at the start of the window, but their interest cooled.

The likes of Rangers and Middlesbrough were also linked with the ex-England international.

Butland has not made a Premier League appearance since May, in a 3-2 defeat to Everton.
