Swansea City look set to add two new faces to the squad ahead of Saturday's home League match against Watford with the expected signings of striker duo Craig Beattie and Lee Trundle.
Terms have been agreed with West Bromwich Albion for Beattie and he will be in Swansea this evening to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
The transfer fee will be paid to the former Premiership club over the next 12 months, and will beat the current record fee paid, it could also increase based on appearances and success.
Beattie will wear the number 9 shirt and he will be joined by Lee Trundle, who makes a sensational return to the Liberty Stadium, after leaving two years ago.
Trundle will wear the number 19 shirt, and will be available for selection in Saturday's game against Watford. He joins on loan from Bristol City until January 1st, with an option to extend the loan if we want to.
Swansea City fans have had plenty to discuss today with early reports of a potential return for the popular scouser as we desperately need to ease our striker crisis. Stephen Dobbie is out with a rib injury and Gorka Pintado serves a minimum one-match suspension.
Craig Beattie started his career with Celtic and spent 4 seasons at the SPL club before joining West Brom in 2007 for a £1.25m fee. He had loan spells with Preston, Crystal Palace and Sheffield United during his two-year spell at the Hawthorns.
Last season, he spent 3 months in the Championship with Sheffield United, making 16 appearances, all but 3 of them coming off the substitutes bench.
Craig Beattie scored a brace in midweek as West Brom beat Rotherham United 4-3 in the Carling Cup second round after extra time.
