Swansea City midfielder George Byers has joined Portsmouth on loan for the rest of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 24-year-old links up with former Swans boss Kenny Jackett at Fratton Park, with the south coast eyeing promotion to the Championship from League one.

Byers has been with the Swans since 2016, but has been unable to feature for much of this season due to a longstanding groin problem.

However, he is now back to fitness and will get valuable game time under his belt with Pompey.

Byers has made 65 Swansea appearances so far, scoring eight goals.

Everyone at Swansea wishes George every success in his loan spell.
