Paul Clement has expressed interest in signing Chelsea captain John Terry this summer - if Swansea stay in the Premier League.

Clement knows Terry well from their time at Stamford Bridge together, with the Swansea head coach being Carlo Ancelotti's assistant when Chelsea won a league and cup double in 2009-10.

And Clement has responded to Terry's announcement that he is leaving Chelsea at the end of the season by admitting he would love to bring the 36-year-old to south Wales.

If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested? I know John very well as a player and a person and I would be more than happy to speak to him.

That is not something I have thought about at this point, we have to focus on the players and games we have got. When the season finishes we can have those discussions about our own players and potential targets.

But having worked with John, I know what a fantastic player he is and what a career he has had. He has unbelievable talent and he is a fantastic leader - one of a dying breed of leaders.

He has represented that club so well over so many years in a time when players are too quick to move on and go from club to club.

He's spent virtually his whole life playing there and congratulations to him for such an amazing career.

Swansea captain Jack Cork is undergoing "intensive treatment" on an ankle injury in a bid to face Watford.

Cork had to be substituted during the weekend defeat at West Ham but has a chance to play on Saturday after scans revealed he had suffered a minor ankle sprain.

The Swans are two points away from safety in 18th place after taking just one point from their last five matches.

Cork will undergo intensive treatment this week and, if his recovery goes well, he could be involved against one of his former clubs at Vicarage Road.

The 27-year-old has featured in every game since Paul Clement was appointed at the beginning of January and he has a chance of extending that record when the Swans go to Watford this coming weekend.
