Swansea City are close to agreeing a deal with Spanish side Sevilla for midfielder Roque Mesa who is set to make a permanent switch to the La Liga outfit, according to the BBC.
The 29-year old, an £11m signing for the Swans 12 months ago from Las Palmas, struggled to adapt to English football despite coming with a good reputation.
Many thought the deep-lying playmaker could help Swansea rediscover the passing style that they displayed in their first few Premier League years but he had little impact on the team.
That saw him join the Andalusian club on a loan in January and whilst he obviously did enough to impress because BBC are reporting that an agreement for the player is close.
Sevilla are set to pay around £8m for the midfielder meaning the Welsh side are set to take a loss on the player, although that was to be expected.
He will be the latest player to leave the Swans, who are under new management with Graham Potter, after Lukasz Fabianski left for West Ham yesterday.
This is good business for Swansea and the player. His move to the club didn’t work out and it seemed inevitable he would leave this summer even if they had survived in the top-flight.
Clearly, he is more suited to Spanish football, whilst Swansea get a decent fee and cut his salary from the wage bill.
Therefore, it’s a move that will suit everyone. Now Potter will look to use those funds to reinvest into his squad ahead of their Championship campaign.
