Swansea could face an all-British tie after they were drawn against either Hibernian or Malmo in the Europa League third qualifying round.

The Capital One Cup winners qualified for the tournament when they beat Bradford at Wembley, and fans will be eager to see European football back in Swansea for the first time in 22 years.

Malmo hold a 2-0 advantage heading into next Thursday’s second-leg at Easter Road, but should Hibernian prevail, it will set-up an all-British tie that will draw a lot of attention from the home nations.

The first leg of the third round tie will be held at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium on August 1, with the return leg in either Sweden or Scotland taking place a week later.

Swansea last participated in Europe following their Welsh Cup success in 1991, but their Cup Winners’ Cup campaign ended after they suffered an emphatic 10-1 aggregate defeat to a Monaco side managed by Arsene Wenger and fielding the likes of George Weah and Youri Djorkaeff.

Should Hibs manage to overturn the two-goal deficit against Malmo it would mean the Edinburgh club's new signing Owain Tudor Jones would come up against his former side.

Wales cap Jones enjoyed a four-year spell with the Swans between 2005 and 2009.

Elsewhere, St Johnstone have been drawn against Valletta of FC Minsk should they overcome Rosenborg, and Motherwell will meet Kuban Krasnodar of Russia.
