Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas looks closer than ever to leaving the club for Premier League outfit Swansea City, based on the words of Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky this afternoon.
Following the big-money departure of star man Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton on Wednesday, Swansea have a considerable stash of funds to part with over the coming weeks, with English reports suggesting that the majority of the £45 million they received will be spent on new signings.
And, as per an increasing number of outlets this afternoon, it looks as though the first player to arrive at the Liberty Stadium in the wake of Sigurdsson’s departure will be Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas.
Paul Clement’s side have long been linked with a move for the 26-year-old Englishman, with it reported earlier this week that Swansea had seen a bid of £12 million rebuffed for Clucas.
However, speaking following his side’s defeat at QPR earlier today, Hull boss Leonid Slutsky admitted that his midfield star is ‘preparing to play for another club.’
Though he did not confirm which club he was referring to, it is reported that Clucas’ move to Swansea is as good as done.
