Reports today are suggesting that Bolton Wanderers are edging closer to completing the signing of midfielder Darren Pratley.

TalkSport ‘understands’ that the Premiership side are hoping to complete the move before the transfer window closes next week.

TalkSport says a move is ‘imminent’ as manager Owen Coyle is believed to be keen to complete the signing of the 25 year-old, who has caused some controversy and frustration with the Swans fans for not signing a new contract last year.

Pratley’s current deal expires in June which would allow him to leave for free at the end of the season, and Rodgers didn’t rule out the possibility of him leaving this month.

The midfielder, who has scored 7 goals this season, is eyeing a move to the Premiership and Swansea City isn’t a club to stand in his way – not that they can after this month’s transfer window. Whether or not he’ll leave within the next week remains to be seen, but it’s looks very unlikely that he’ll sign a new contract in the Summer if he doesn’t.
