Former Hearts defender Jimmy Dunne is said to be in talks with Swansea City as he searches for a new club (BE).
Dunne is out-of-contract at the end of this month after seven appearances with Burnley last season. Swansea City are now said to be discussing the potential of Hearts’ former centre-back swapping Turf Moor for Wales.
The former Republic of Ireland youth defender scored on his Premier League debut against Leicester City last year. Swansea City interest in the 23-year-old stems from Dunne falling down the pecking order at Burnley, dropping behind James Tarkowski, Ben Mee and Kevin Long, with another centre-back in Nathan Collins signing last week.
Hearts fans still hold Dunne in high-regard for his short but impactful spell at Hearts in 2018. He made 14 appearances during a six-month loan stint, scoring twice and assisting once, heading back down south in 2019 off the back of his good form.
