Swansea are poised to sign Wayne Routledge after having their THIRD bid for the Newcastle winger accepted.
The Premier League new boys tabled a £1.8million offer for the 26-year-old on Saturday after the Toon Army rejected two previous approaches.
It is understood the former England Under-21 international, who stayed in the UK when Newcastle headed to the US for their pre-season tour, will discuss personal terms with Swansea today.
It looks likely that Brendan Rodgers’ men will beat off fellow promoted outfit Queens Park Rangers, as well as Championship duo Nottingham Forest and Leicester, for the midfielder’s signature.
