Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray has strengthened his defensive options with the addition of Daniel Alfei on loan from Swansea City until the end of the season.
The deal will be completed subject to international clearance.
Alfei, 23, has four senior appearances under his belt for the Premier League outfit and also boasts experience at League Two level, having played on loan for Portsmouth two years ago and Northampton Town last season.
Swansea born Alfei has represented his country and U17, U19 and U21 level.
After completing the signing this afternoon, Stags’ boss Adam Murray said: “We feel privileged to have Dan on board until the end of the season.
“He is at a good age and already has experience of playing in this league.
“Dan will fit into the way we want to play and has superb attributes.
“He is intelligent, an excellent footballer and will bring good qualities to our defence and will give us a good attacking balance heading forward.
“We believe that with the attributes which Dan possesses, we will be able to mould him into the type of player which will take the club forward.”
