Swansea Town Transfer Rumor: Leroy Lita to Boost Swans Attack?
Sky Sports is reporting this afternoon that Premier League newcomers Swansea Town, a club based in Wales, are to announce the signing of English forward Leroy Lita, 26, from Middlesbrough.
According to the article, Lita - who has already played in the Premier League with Reading - is set to travel to Swansea to discuss personal terms and sign a contract.
This would be welcome news to the club's fans, who may have grown concerned by the lack of arrivals this summer.
Lita scored six goals in nine appearances for England U21 between 2005 and 2007 but has struggled to replicate the form in domestic football, despite possessing pace power in abundance. Although he has a similar off-the-shoulder style to Jermain Defoe, he has not yet hit the same heights.
But it seems that Swansea have heeded the warning of 'Boro manager Tony Mowbray and stumped up some extra cash for Lita, who had only one year remaining on his contract.
The move may even go through before the end of the week.
