Matt Grimes: Fulham change of eyes for the Swansea City captain

Matt Grimes has played 157 games for Swansea since joining Exeter in 2015

Fulham are keen to sign Swansea City captain Matt Grimes.

The 26-year-old midfielder is likely to leave Liberty Stadium this summer as his contract runs for just one year.

Swansea has expected to lose Grimes since losing to Brentford in the championship play-off final in May as they can only afford to offer him a new deal on reduced terms.

Grimes has been one of Swansea’s star players since being relegated from the Premier League in 2018.

Swansea is believed to value the ex-Exeter City youngster around £ 5million, though they may be happy with a lower fee.

Relegated from the Premier League last season, Fulham has just finished sold midfielder Stefan Johansen to the Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee, while they signed Welsh international Harry Wilson and former Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Connor Roberts and Jake Bidwell are two other Swansea players who are out of the contract in 2022 and could attract interest from elsewhere Robert’s groin injury could reduce the chances of him moving on during the summer transfer window.
