Middle Eastern group in takeover talks for Swansea

A Middle Eastern group are in takeover talks for Swansea City.

The Sun says Swansea are a target for a Middle East consortium who are putting together a bid worth about £50million.

The current American owners still value the Swans highly and have an eye on promotion, which would increase the price.

But if the team stumble as the season progresses, the talks may turn into a serious takeover attempt.

The Swans currently sit in tenth spot in the Championship table following their 3-1 win against Middlesbrough.

Their victory ended a run of six matches without a win as they proved to be too good for the nine men of Boro.
