Could Jay Fulton be on his way from Falkirk to the Liberty Stadium and Swansea City

Comments (3)

SWANSEA City are thought to be closing in on a double deal to sign Falkirk pair Jay Fulton and Stephen Kingsley.

Swansea completed the signing of teenage Hearts midfielder Adam King earlier this week.

And they now look likely to secure the services of two more Scottish starlets before tomorrow night's transfer deadline.

Fulton, 19, has scored nine goals in 93 Falkirk appearances since breaking into the first team at the age of 17.

Fulton's contract expires at the end of the season, and it is believed a bid of around £200,000 would seal his move to Wales.

Swansea are also believed to be interested in left-back Kingsley, also 19.

He has nearly 90 Falkirk appearances to his credit and has scored two goals.

Falkirk general manager David White said: "There has been significant interest in our young players in recent weeks and bids were always expected.

"However, we are in no rush to sell any of our squad and supporters can be assured that only when our valuations are met will players be allowed to move on.

"Any deals have to be in the best interests of Falkirk Football Club."

    Just because Swansea are not buying Welsh does not mean there is no Welsh talent in the youth setup. Lest we forget, Swansea is based in Wales thus has a catchment area within Wales meaning that we don't have to sign the best of Wales... We develop them ourselves. There's nothing wrong with buying talent from other areas, in fact it's good business. Wales is not the biggest country and will not be producing players like Giggs or Bale on a conveyor belt.

    Would be nice to have young Welsh talent. But if none is around or available, any young talent will do!! Build for the future and buy cheap sell big, when we can!!
