Newcastle United Accept Swansea's Routledge Bid

Newcastle United Accept Swansea's Routledge Bid

Various sources, including Sky Sports News and the Mirror are reporting today that Newcastle United have accepted Swansea City's £1.8m bid for Wayne Routledge.

Manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Saturday after the 3-1 friendly win at Port Talbot that they had made an improved offer for the winger, and apparently the bid has been accepted by the Magpies, allowing the Swans to talk to the player about a potential move.

It is also believed that Wayne Routledge has not gone on Newcastle United's pre-season tour, instead staying home to discuss personal terms with the Swans.

We may have a bid accepted for Routledge, but the news I'm sure will attract Leicester City to equal the bid after they also had a £1.5m offer rejected. So the Swans are still likely to face competition to attract the 26 year-old to sign, as he has also been linked with a move back to QPR, after playing for Rangers on loan last season.

If Routledge does sign, he'll add quality in midfield and provide good competition for the current established wingers in the squad - Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer. Rodgers is looking for particular players that will suit his style of football, and the Swansea boss has said that Routledge is that type of player.

Before having a bid accepted for Routledge, Rodgers said:

'We think he would fit into our style and excite our supporters. We will wait to see if we can agree a deal.'
