Bersant Celina

Celina is a 21-year-old midfielder who spent last season on loan at Ipswich Town – he also spent time on-loan at Dutch outfit FC Twente the season before.

He was born in Prizren, Kosovo and moved to Norway when he was two-years-old as a refugee to escape the conflict of his home country.

And according to the Manchester Evening News, Swansea City are chasing the Kosovo international as Graham Potter looks to strengthen his squad ahead of their Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Celina started his football at Norwegian outfit Stromsgodset, who he played for at youth football. He then made the move to Manchester City’s youth academy in 2012.

After spending two seasons playing for Manchester City’s youth academy, Celina signed his first professional contract in July 2014, on a three-year deal.

However, it hasn’t really worked out for the highly-rated youngster yet at the Ethiad Stadium and he’s featured just once for City – making his debut in a 3-0 away win in the FA Cup, on January 9th, 2016.
