Mesa to Swansea within 24 hours

La Liga News UK understands that Roque Mesa will join Premier League side Swansea City within the next 24 hours.

Mesa was one of La Liga’s most in-form midfielder throughout last season and has been linked with a number of Premier League sides – prompting Swansea City to quickly discuss and agree terms.

Italian side Roma and Sevilla were also showing heated interested in Mesa, but a €13m is thought to have been agreed by all parties for him to move to the Liberty stadium.

Las Palmas sporting director Toni Cruz has now all-but confirmed the move, telling press at a conference announcing Manolo Marquez as boss: “There is already agreement for the transfer of Roque to Swansea City and tomorrow (it) can be made official.”#

It is also reported that Las Palmas will include a sell-on fee clause in the sale of the 28-year-old and receive a bonus payment if he makes a senior Spanish international appearance.

Largely unknown to La Liga, Mesa began his career with Levante as a youth, before making appearances for Huracan, Tenerife B, Atletico Balaeres.

His departure from Las Palmas after 126 league appearances will leave a huge gap in their central midfield.
