Parker Agrees Terms With Swansea?

Parker Agrees Terms With Swansea?

Swansea City look set to be in pole position to sign Blackpool striker Keigan Parker, providing they can agree a fee with Championship side.

Press reports have linked the former St Johnston player with a move to South Wales in the last week.

With mounting speculation growing over his future Parker has According to many Blackpool fans already agreed terms with Swansea

News of this speculation can be found in the Vital Swansea forum to access the forum click the link bellow.

All that stands in Swansea's way would be the two clubs to settle on a transfer fee.

The Scottish striker is out of contract in June, the Swans won't be willing to spend a high fee for a player they could get for free in 6 months time.

The 25 year-old is out of favour with the Seasiders, having failed to score this season in 10 League starts.

Last season however, he averaged a goal every two games in League, scoring 15 goals in 27 appearances.

Fellow promotion hopefuls Nottingham Forest have apparently joined the race for his services, but strong speculation suggests a move to the Liberty Stadium is almost done.

With the potential arrival of another striker, you have to wonder where this leaves Darryl Duffy. The Scottish striker joined us for £200,000 from Hull in the Summer but has failed to set the world alight this season.

He's found it difficult to claim a place on the bench in some games and isn't even getting run outs in the cup games.

We'll be bringing you a Question and Answers feature on Parker, thanks to Vital Blackpool.

In the meantime, here are a few opinions from Blackpool fans taken from our forum

He's a cracking player - great pace and scares defenders sh*tless in league 1. His composure can let him down at times, but he'll be a great asset for you. Of course, he'll buy you deadball plays in and around the box as well, which I'm sure Robinson will love!

If it happens you'll get a very good league one player that will frustrate you with the number of times he gets offside but will outrun all defences in the league and can setup a goal if you've got a good finisher.

He is undoubtedly a player with ability and pace to burn, he terrorised defences in League 1. When he's on his game he is without doubt that extra something nobody else has got. Unfortunately he has got a lot of personal 'issues' which, at the moment, seem to have got the better of him. Maybe a change of scene, new manager etc will knuckle him down. However, like with a lot of exciting players it is because they are what they are it makes them a bit of a maverick on the pitch too.

I think Keigan's time with us is over even if we come back down and I'm sure we'd be happy to get something for him in January. I get the feeling that you guys rate your manager and they say that the time to strengthen is when you are at the top so who knows, perhaps it could be worth a punt for you.

Personally I would be sad to see him go because he's given us some great memories, but all things run their course and we have to move on too.

Should we sign Keigan Parker? If we do, where does this leave Darryl Duffy?
