Bob Bradley believes Brian Flynn's return can boost Swansea

Bob Bradley feels former Swansea manager Brian Flynn has a key role to play in the January transfer window after rejoining the club as a scout.

Flynn saved Swansea from dropping out of the Football League on the final day of the 2002-03 season and returns to his native south Wales having worked as a scout at Everton for two years while Roberto Martinez was in charge at Goodison Park.

The 61-year-old developed a reputation as a star-spotter when he was in charge of Wales' youth sides between 2004 and 2012 - helping to produce the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen - and Bradley believes Flynn's knowledge will serve Swansea well as they attempt to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Brian played a real important role here with some of the real success that has taken place.

His eye for talent has paid off in the past. So when we talk about recruitment, it starts with people who can spot talent. Brian's track record in that regard at Swansea is special, as is his experience as a manager.

So I'm looking forward to working with him, but it is fantastic for all of us to have a football man like that as we try to move things forward.

– Bob Bradley, Swansea City Manager
