Looking for Non-EU / Non-International players

I have just finished my first season as Swansea and I want to get have a team full of Welsh players. Anyway I thought of a loophole but it's hard to find players that meet the criteria. I am looking for players who need a work permit so would take UK citizenship when eligible, but have also never played internationally so they could then play for Wales.
For example, Gabriel Paulista (Arsenal) could be eligible after living in the UK for the required days. Mikel Arteta wouldn't because he is already in EU (Spain).

A successful example is Denilson (Brazilian ex Arsenal midfielder) who has already lived in the UK long enough and will apply for citizenship as soon as he returns to the UK. At first he is declared for Brazil but I hope over time that disappears and he can then play for Wales.

(btw sorry for all the Arsenal examples)…
