Reports in Spain are saying that Swansea City are getting ever closer to completing a deal to bring in Las Palmas defensive midfielder Roque Mesa for a fee of around £10m.

The 28 year-old is expected to sign a four-year deal at the Liberty Stadium worth around £50,000 a week, with a press conference expected on Wednesday at Las Palmas to confirm their record transfer fee received.

The deal hasn`t yet been confirmed as reports say that there are still some finances to agree on – in terms of how the fee will be paid.

Mesa would be an impressive signing if the Swans do manage to pull it off – providing that he can quickly adjust to the Premier League as a number of people tipped him for a move to a bigger club this Summer.

A player capable of dictating the play – like our very own Leon Britton, Mesa averaged 91.4% passing success rate in La Liga last season. He`s also a player that doesn`t shy away from a tackle, having picked up 14 bookings in 2016/17.
