It was being reported yesterday that Stoke City had made a late move to rival Wolverhampton Wanderers in their speculated chase for Swansea City midfielder Sam Clucas.
The former Hull City midfielder made the switch to Swansea in late August last year for a reported £16.5million and in 36 showings in total he returned three goals and following their relegation they are looking to move him on.
Wales Online are one of many to suggest that we’ve now made a firm enquiry for his services, if not a firm offer ahead of the permanent deadline window closing at 5pm later this evening.
The 27-year-old arguably didn’t have a great season for the Swans, but few did, and what he’s capable of was best demonstrated at Hull really – especially in terms of his attacking threat.
He is currently recovering from a knee injury and had looked set to join Burnley after a reported £8million fee was agreed with Sean Dyche’s side, but that deal broke down based on personal terms so I would think that would bring our interest into doubt given our captures so far, unless we expect to see another one out the door to help offset it.
