We will sell Luc Castaignos to Swansea City, say FC Twente
Comments (3)

DUTCH side FC Twente have admitted they are prepared to sell striker Luc Castaignos to Swansea City.

Swansea are believed to have tabled an offer of around £6.5 million for the former Inter Milan forward.

And Twente have now confirmed they have reached an agreement over a fee with Swansea - and that no other club have come in for Castaignos at this stage.

However, the Evening Post understands that despite Swansea's interest in the player, no deal is imminent.

New Swansea boss Garry Monk has been monitoring Castiagnos, but at this stage there is no guarantee that he will end up at the Liberty.

Twente could be keen to get a deal done as they have financial concerns.

"The choice is always up to the player, but the clubs can work it out," said Twente chairman Joop Munsterman.

    If an offer of £6.5 million was tabled, and FC Twente have said they're ready to agree, and according to the article, "And FC Twente have reached an agreement over a fee with Swansea..." how is a deal not imminent? ----------------- Possibly because the player hasn't yet agreed or more likely FCT won't accept the offer until they are sure nobody else will beat it (which is why they are splashing it all over the papers in the hope of starting an auction)

    If Bony does go we still need to sign another striker we can't keep on relying on 1 main goalscorer as we did with Bony and Michu before him its too risky, if Bony had been a flop with Michu's injuries we'd have been in real trouble this season

    If an offer of £6.5 million was tabled, and FC Twente have said they're ready to agree, and according to the article, "And FC Twente have reached an agreement over a fee with Swansea..." how is a deal not imminent? Also, what becomes the role of Castaignos if we keep Bony? Or is this possibly a hint that the club might not expect Bony to be around at the end of August?
