Hull City's Clucas set for Premier League move

Sam Clucas

According to reports, Swansea City have become the latest club to have a bid rejected for Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas.

Clucas is expected to agree personal terms and have a medical in south Wales on Wednesday following Swansea's Carabao Cup tie at MK Dons the previous evening.

Swansea have been looking to replace Gylfi Sigurdsson after the talismanic playmaker sealed a £45m move to Everton this month, and reportedly see the 26-year-old is an ideal replacement.

Clucas has featured 96 times for the Humberside club, scoring nine times.

So, what do the Hull fans really think about Clucas' departure?

Clucas asked to be left out of Hull's squad for their 2-1 Championship defeat at QPR on Saturday amid continued transfer speculation.

Clucas was one of Hull's shining lights last season despite their relegation to the Championship, having missed just one Premier League game all season and Swansea are ready to offer him the chance to return to the Premier League.

"When you haven't got Gylfi, you haven't got Fernando Llorente and you haven't got Ki Sung-Yueng, who did well for us at the end of last season, then of course we are weaker".

Though he did not confirm which club he was referring to, it is reported that Clucas' move to Swansea is as good as done.
