Burnley wrapping up deal for Swansea midfielder Sam Clucas

Burnley are finalising a deal for Swansea City midfielder Sam Clucas.

The Mirror says Clucas is set to undergo a medical at Burnley as his £8million exit from Swansea City moves closer to completion.

The Clarets submitted a bid for midfielder on Thursday, and the former Hull player has travelled to Lancashire with a view to completing that switch over the weekend.

His exit will hopefully clear the way for Swansea to finally wrap up a move for Brentford's Ryan Woods following elongated talks between the two clubs over a £6million transfer.

Clucas, 27, joined Swansea less than a year ago in a £15million deal which saw Stephen Kingsley move the other way.

But he struggled for game time under Paul Clement, who openly-admitted he was unsure of where Clucas would fit into his side.
