Swansea City are lining up another move for Brentford midfielder Ryan Woods, as per a report by Birmingham Live.
He has been linked with Championship sides such as Aston Villa, West Brom and Leeds United but it appears Swansea City are leading the race to sign him.
Woods, who is 24-years-old, is a talented midfielder who has impressed over the past three seasons in the Championship with Brentford. He joined the Bees in 2015 and has since played 127 games for them.
He started his career at Walsall as a youngster before joining Shrewsbury Town when he was 16 years-old. Woods broke into the Shrews’ first-team in the 2012/13 season and became a key player for them before leaving to join Brentford in the second tier for around £1 million.
Woods has adapted well to the step up and will be a very impressive signing for Swansea City if they can pull it off. The Swans’ new boss, Graham Potter, has been busy in recent weeks bolstering his newly inherited squad. They have signed the likes of Bersant Celina from Manchester City, Joel Asoro from Sunderland, Barrie McKay from Nottingham Forest and Yan Dhanda from Liverpool.
It is believed that Brentford value Woods at around £7 million and Swansea will be hoping to tie up a move for him before the transfer deadline tomorrow at 5pm.
It is a new era for Swansea under Graham Potter and they will be busy in the next 24 hours or so. He are two other potential signings they could make, as reported by The72 earlier today.
