Swansea City Bid For Mariappa Is 'Imminent'

According to a Goal.com source, Swansea City look set to make a bid for Watford defender Adrian Mariappa.

The Swans look set to join Newcastle United in the race to sign the 25 year-old, with the Magpies linked with a failed bid for the promising centre back.

Watford manager Sean Dyche said Newcastle's bid, thought to be around 750,000, was nowhere near their asking price. It's been suggested that Swansea City are likely to offer significantly more, around 3.5m.

The Goal.com source said:

"A bid from Swansea is imminent, they have been showing a strong interest and we could have a bidding war on our hands,"

"Mariappa has made it known that he would like to move to a Premier League club, but he`s not the kind of player who would kick up a fuss."


The Swans would have to be quick to tie up a deal for Mariappa as the January transfer window closes on Tuesday night.
