Swansea close on £11.5m Roque Mesa deal - Las Palmas chief
Roque Mesa's transfer to Swansea is on the verge of completion, according to Las Palmas sporting director Toni Cruz.
Swansea are expected to tie up the £11.5 million signing of the highly-rated Spanish midfielder in the next 24 hours or so.
"There is already agreement for the transfer of Roque to Swansea City and tomorrow [it] can be made official,'' said Cruz, speaking at a news conference to unveil new Las Palmas coach Manolo Marquez.
Mesa is known to Swansea boss Paul Clement following the former Real Madrid assistant coach's time at the Bernabeu working alongside Carlo Ancelotti. The 28-year-old's pass-completion rate of 91.4 percent was ranked as the fourth highest in La Liga last season.
But one player seemingly heading for the exit door at the Liberty Stadium is record signing Borja Baston, who is in talks to join Malaga on a season-long loan deal.
Borja joined Swansea for a club record £15.5m from Atletico Madrid in August 2016 after successful loan spells at Real Zaragoza and Eibar. But the 24-year-old had a frustrating season in south Wales, scoring only once in 20 appearances.
