Middlesbrough and Swansea have agreed a fee for the Championship club’s striker Leroy Lita, but Boro boss Tony Mowbray admits there is still work to do before the player can return to the Premiership.
Swansea have offered in the region of £1.75million, but Lita still has to discuss personal terms with the south Wales club.
"We have agreed a fee for Leroy with Swansea, but that doesn't mean much in the modern day," Mowbray told Boro's official club website.
"When deals happen close together there are lots of things which enter the equation. It's the clubs, the player and a multitude of agents, so we will wait and see.
"I've had a good chat with Leroy, if he does the deal then I wish him well. He has the chance to play in the Premier League and good on him. His talent has earned him that chance.
"If he comes back here then I'm sure he will get his head down and work hard to get in this team and make an impact on our season."
