Lita Agrees Personal Terms At Swansea City

Lita Agrees Personal Terms At Swansea City

Swansea City are set to unveil their fourth signing of the Summer on Tuesday as Leroy Lita has agreed personal terms at the Liberty Stadium.

"I think he could be a good signing, he has physical presence, and has the ability to finish aerially and on the deck. "

HAVE YOUR SAY
The Middlesbrough striker is expected to meet with manager Brendan Rodgers and chairman Huw Jenkins next week following their return from Austria to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on a three-year deal.

Both are delighted with the news and Jenkins told the Official Site:

"Myself and Brendan (Rodgers) are delighted to come to an agreement with Leroy,''

"As I have said previously, Leroy was one of the manager's main targets when he arrived in Swansea a year ago.''


Swansea City agreed a £1.75m fee with Championship side Middlesbrough for the 26 year-old frontman, but the news doesn't seem to have excited many fans ahead of the new Premier League season, which kicks off in just over a fortnight.

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.

What are your views on Lita's signing? Are you happy with the news of his arrival next week?
