Swansea City Close To Agreeing Fee For Striker?

BBC Sport and Sky Sports believe that Swansea City are close to agreeing a fee for Middlesbrough striker Leroy Lita.

The Swans have been linked with a move for Middlesbrough's forward duo Leroy Lita and former loanee Marvin Emnes for a number of weeks now, but manager Tony Mowbray has warned Swansea City that they'll have to make a serious bid to tempt them to sell either player.

Brendan Rodgers and his squad are currently in Austria as part of their preparation for the new Premier League season which starts for them on August 15th, but the Swansea boss is still constantly looking to bring in new players.

Lita started his professional career at Bristol City, where he scored 31 goals in 44 starts before a £1m switch to Reading in 2005. He was part of the Reading side that won promotion to the Premier League in the 2005-06 season.

In 2009 he joined his current club Middlesbrough on a free transfer, netting 20 goals in 51 appearances.

Lita's contract expires at the end of the season which will help the Swans get him for a slightly lower fee, as Middlesbrough could risk losing him for nothing next Summer.
