Swansea City boss Russell Martin has denied the Championship club are weighing up a move for Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady.

Martin played knows Brady well having played with him at Norwich six years ago.

The Dubliner is a free agent after his contract with Burnley expired earlier this summer. He trained with the national team during the recent international break, and though he's been linked with a move to the Welsh outfit, Martin was coy when addressing the rumours.

"I love Robbie as a guy," he told Wales Online. "He's brilliant, a fantastic player, been in the Premier League for the last however long, but I haven’t spoken to him. I haven’t spoken to him for a while, being honest.

"So there’s nothing in that at the moment. He’s a good player, really good player, but I just think we’ve got a lot of players at the moment. We just need to work out who’s going to fit in and who’s going to really be with us over a long period of time.

"If it was different timing, then I'd possibly be telling you that I'd be really interested in it, but at this moment in time, there's nothing there."

The Swans did make a swoop for another Irishman on deadline day. Michael Obafemi agreed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee to bring an end to his five-year spell at Southampton.
