    We report the probable discovery of the radio counterpart to the new X-ray transient Swift J1753.5-0127 (ATEL#546,#547), in observations with the Multi-Element Radio-Linked Interferometer Network (MERLIN). MERLIN (+Lovell telescope) observed for ~8 hours on 2005 July 3, at 1.7 GHz, at the position of the optical counterpart reported by Halpern (ATEL#549). We detect a radio source at RA 17 53 28.29, Dec -01 27 06.22 (J2000, uncertainty of 50 milliarsec), consistent with the optical coordinates of Halpern, and also the revised Swift-UVOT coordinates reported by Still (ATEL#555).
