Conor Hourihane: Boss Steve Cooper the main factor in Swansea loan move

New Swansea City signing Conor Hourihane says head coach Steve Cooper was the main factor behind him choosing to join the Welsh club on loan from Aston Villa.

The Swans beat off competition from a host of other clubs to secure the Republic of Ireland International until the end of the season as they look to secure promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.
