Derby County have been said to have offered Swansea City a deal of up to £2 million for Ferrie Bodde.

The deal however will be worth up to £2 million including add ons. One report in the local media has suggested that the deal on the table is not a full cash deal which would hint at a possible player plus cash deal.

Momentum is now firmly gaining behind the Pride Park outfit and a deal could be reached in the very near future. Bids of £500,000 and £750,000 were turned down flatly by Swansea for the former Ado Den Haag player in quick succession.

Swans Chairman Huw Jenkins had put a price tag of £2 million on the Dutchman and vigorously defended the clubs firm stance over the price tag.The Bodde transfer saga has caused a bitter war or words between the two clubs in recent weeks but it finally seems that this ongoing bidding process is about to come to a close.

Swansea paid only £85,000 for the Delft born midfielder but with a 50% sell on clause payable to Ado Den Hagg. No offical confirmation of has been disclosed by club officals at the Liberty Stadium about this new Rams bid.
