Swansea City Eying For Tottenham Midfielder Tom Carroll

Tom Carroll

Swansea City are edging closer to signing of Tom Carroll after agreeing an initial fee for the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder.

It is understood Spurs have accepted a basic offer of around £5m for Carroll but want the overall deal to be worth around £9m when add-ons are included. That is more than the bid Swansea have currently put on the table but talks are ongoing, with both clubs confident a resolution will be found.

Carroll’s switch could be finalised as early as next week as Swansea’s new manager Paul Clement continues to shake up his squad for the fight against relegation from the Premier League. Swansea sit 19th before Saturday’s game at home to Arsenal.

Luciano Narsingh’s £4m move from PSV Eindhoven was completed on Thursday and, as well as Carroll, Clement has confirmed the club are in negotiations with Norwich over a deal for the defender Martin Olsson.

Carroll is already familiar with Swansea after spending a successful season on loan at the Liberty Stadium in 2014-15. The 24-year-old joined Tottenham’s academy in 2008 but has never established himself as a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino.

He has made only one Premier League appearance for Spurs this season, coming on as a last-minute substitute against Crystal Palace in August.
