Premier League newcomers Swansea City admit that they are on the edge of agreeing a deal with an unnamed club for midfielder Shaun MacDonald. The Welsh Under-21 international record-holder still has a year of his contract left to run at the Liberty Stadium, but does not appear to be part of manager Brendan Rodgers' plans.
Rodgers himself confirms that there is a League One club that has more or less matched the transfer fee they would expect for the 23 year old, and adds that there are 'one or two' others that have expressed an interest, but without matching that offer. However, no names are mentioned as yet. Speaking to BBC Sport, Rodgers explains:
"We've had an offer for Shaun which is near our valuation. It is a League One club and one or two others are interested. But it is a big decision for Shaun. He is a great guy and is no problem whatsoever. But he knows his chances here are very, very limited. He is from Swansea, he loves the club and is a difficult club to walk away from now because it has grown so much in the last season. I'm just trying to help and give him advice on what is the best possible move for his career. But I respect and understand he needs time."
Whilst Yeovil Town might not be the League One club Rodgers states has met their valuation, it would be a surprise if the Glovers had not at least enquired about the Welshman, who has had five loan spells at Huish Park and is hugely popular amongst fans in South Somerset.
