Swans move closer to Donnelly deal

GiveMeSport

Swansea are closing in on a deal for Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly after having an improved bid for the teenager accepted on Tuesday night.

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international has been in prolific form this season and already has three hat-tricks to his name.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers returned to his homeland to watch the 19-year-old feature for Cliftonville in their County Antrim Shield victory over Glentoran last month, and the Welsh club went on to submit two bids for the player last week, the latter of which has been accepted.
