Swansea City manager Paul Clement was confident yesterday evening that they would complete the deal for Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas somepoint today.

The 26 year old was at the Liberty Stadium for a medical on Tuesday and talks were had on personal terms.

The BBC reported that although Swansea had had a £12million bid rejected for him, Hull were confident a price would be agreed and allowed the player to travel to sort out the other side of the sale in advance of us coming to an agreement.

Clement explained.

‘He’s had a medical today (Tuesday), but I don’t believe the paperwork’s been signed yet. I think that’s very close to being done and assuming that happens, tomorrow (Wednesday) he’ll be a Swansea player.’

Hull gaffer Leonid Slutsky had said that Clucas was ‘preparing to play for another club’ when he sat out of our defeat to Queens Park Rangers last weekend and he was of course not involved in last night’s EFL Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers.

It’s believed that the deal will see left back Stephen Kingsley make the switch in the opposite direction as a part exchange.
