Hartlepool midfielder Thomas Butler is poised to seal a move to Swansea.
Thomas Butler is poised to seal a move to Swansea after his present club Hartlepool announced the midfielder had agreed personal terms with the Welsh outfit.
Butler handed in a transfer request at Victoria Park following their relegation from League One.
The Swans have been linked with the former Sunderland man for some time, but they stated that no deal had been agreed on Thursday.
Pools have since revealed that the player has agreed personal terms and it is expected that he will wrap up a move to The Liberty Stadium before the week is out.
Butler could be joined at Swansea by Kevin Amankwaah, as reports suggest the Yeovil defender is on the cusp of a move.
