Luc Castaignos: Fee has been agreed for summer switch to Swansea

Luc Castaignos: Fee has been agreed for summer switch to Swansea

A fee for the 21-year-old frontman has been agreed, with Garry Monk eager to bolster his attacking options at the Liberty Stadium.

Castaignos is yet to arrive in Wales, though, and Swansea are continuing to explore other options.

Twente claim there is no cause for alarm on the transfer front, with there still every chance that a summer switch will be pushed through.

They fully expect discussions to be re-opened once Castaignos returns from a well-earned break, with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins also currently out of the country.

Twente chairman Joop Munsterman told Voetbal International: “It will be a while before things can be done.

“The choice is up to the player. Only when Luc is back from vacation and is negotiating with Swansea can we expect progress. And as I have said, the clubs can work it out.”

Former Inter Milan striker Castaignos netted 14 times in the Eredivisie last season and boasts a strike rate of close to a goal every other game since returning to his native Holland in 2012.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
