Swansea City are edging closer to a deal for Middlesbrough loan man Marvin Emnes.

SWANSEA City are closing in on a deal to sign Marvin Emnes from Middlesbrough for a fee of just over £1 million.

Garry Monk has admitted he is keen to land the forward on a permanent basis after he impressed during a loan spell at the Liberty last season.

And it seems a deal could be done in the next few days.

Boro paid £3.2 million to sign Emnes from Sparta Rotterdam six years ago, but he has only a year to run on his contract, so could be available at a knockdown price.

    Signing a decent player for £1 m is a real bargain. I like him and Swansea is a good club for him.

    He was playing for a place and a club on loan, if he continues that form, good buy at 1 million.

    Same as hacker jack, I was not convinced before he came here (premier league snobbery I guess), but I hold my hand up, he's done enough to give himself a chance for another season and helped us get a few important goals, and for that sort of money, its worth a pop. I reckon he's the type of guy that will realise THIS is his best chance to shine on the big stage. so I'm expecting him to have a good season now he feels like he's a full time swansea player.

    A managerial change prevented Emnes signing at the end of his initial loan period,some 3-4 years ago. He must have been disappointed not to have made the move then,so let's hope he manages it this time. Used properly,he could be a surprise package. His super winning goal against Cardiff means he is already a legend at The Club.

    I wasn't convinced when we loaned him again last year, figured he would be a decent squad-filler and nothing more but he actually looked one of our livelier players in the last few weeks. If he is available for the fee mentioned then he would be a good addition.
