Swansea City have agreed to sign Manchester City young midfielder Bersant Celina for a fee of £3 million, which, with add-ons, could rise to £4 million.
That is according to Sky Sports News, who report that Swansea have made their move after the 21-year old enjoyed an impressive loan spell with Ipswich Town in the Championship last season.
Celina who was born in Norway but is of Kosovo Albanian parentage joined City as a 17-year old, and made 4 appearances for the Sky Blues in the 2015 – 2016 season before being sent on loan, first to Dutch side FC Twente, and then the following season to Ipswich.
Having played his international football up to under-21 level with Norway, Celina switched his allegiance to Kosovo as soon as FIFA permitted the country to play sanctioned international friendly matches, and has since gone on to amass 10 caps for his adopted country.
