Brighton & Hove Albion are thought to be close to signing Swansea City midfielder Ryan Harley.

Speculation is growing that Brighton boss Gus Poyet has renewed his interest in Harley after failing to sign him in the January transfer window, after he joined Swansea City instead.

Harley looks set to find first team appearances very limited in the Premier League this season and he could be set to join Brighton – most likely on loan – before he’s even played a competitive match for the Swans following his move from Exeter City.

There has been few reports linking Harley with a move to the League One side, but some local newspapers in Brighton believe that Harley could be close to a move.

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has to name his 25-man squad by September 1st, and it would seem that Harley would struggle to make it, paving the way for a switch to get regular first team football at the Falmer Stadium.

We will have to see if anything else develops regarding this story over the next few days.
