The Premier League club had been in talks since the autumn with US billionaire John Jay Moores, the former owner of the San Diego Padres baseball franchise, over investment.

But on Friday evening, ahead of a Swansea City Supporters Trust meeting to discuss the issue, a club spokesman said a deal was "extremely unlikely".

I'm positive that any movement away from the current set-up will only be put in place if everyone connected to our club is convinced it's a good thing for the football club first and foremost.

If not, and this is my opinion, I can see the status quo continuing for some years to come.

– Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins

Winger Wayne Routledge could return for Swansea for their trip to West Brom on Wednesday, but is likely to start on the bench.

Routledge returned to training on Monday following the calf strain he picked up against Chelsea on January 17 and fellow wideman Modou Barrow is also available after sustaining a blow to the knee in Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Sunderland.

But Gylfi Sigurdsson is absent again as he completes a three-match suspension and Marvin Emnes is out with a hamstring injury.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Cork, Ki, Shelvey, Montero, Dyer, Gomis, Tremmel, Rangel, Amat, Bartley, Fulton, Carroll, Britton, Routledge, Barrow, Oliveira, Grimes, King.

Ki back from Asian Cup for Swansea

Swansea will be boosted by the return of Ki Sung-yueng for the home clash with Sunderland, after the midfielder's exploits in the Asian Cup.

Former England Under-21 international Jack Cork, signed from Southampton last week, could make his Swans debut and also feature in midfield while Leon Britton and Jefferson Montero are both in contention after missing last week's 1-0 win at Southampton.

But Kyle Bartley and Gylfi Sigurdsson remain suspended, Wayne Routledge is still missing and Marvin Emnes has been ruled out for three weeks after picking up a hamstring strain at St Mary's.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Ki, Britton, Shelvey, Cork, Montero, Dyer, Gomis, Tremmel, Rangel, Amat, Fulton, Carroll, Barrow, Oliveira, Grimes, King.

Striker Connor Wickham, who missed Tuesday night's 3-1 FA Cup fourth round replay victory at Fulham with a calf injury sustained in the warm-up, is likely to sit out once again along with midfielder Lee Cattermole as he continues his recovery from a knee problem.

Adam Johnson (thumb surgery) and Jack Rodwell (groin) are rated at only 50-50, while fellow midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini suffered bruising during the game at Craven Cottage and is also a doubt, along with full-back Billy Jones and midfielder Will Buckley, who both have unspecified knocks.

Sunderland squad: Pantilimon, Mannone, Reveillere, Jones, Van Aanholt, O'Shea, Brown, Vergini, Coates, Bridcutt, Gomez, Larsson, Johnson, Rodwell, Buckley, Alvarez, Giaccherini, Agnew, Fletcher, Defoe, Graham.
