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.
The 26-year-old featured mainly from the bench last season, but made an impact by winning two penalties against Newcastle and Aston Villa before scoring at Sunderland on the final day.
