Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas could be heading to the Liberty Stadium this summer on a free transfer.
Swansea City look to be be tying up their first transfer dealing of the summer as Real Betis’ Jose Canas is on his way to south Wales, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
Canas’ deal expires at the end of the season and the midfielder may move to Wales and try to emulate fellow Spaniard Michu’s success at the Liberty Stadium.
Reports suggest that the 25-year-old would join Michael Laudrup’s team on a three-year contract, after turning down an offer from Swans’ Premier League rivals West Brom.
After beating Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final, Swansea secured European football for the first time since 1991 and it is believed to be that which has made the club a more attractive prospect for Canas.
The midfielder is still helping Betis towards a Europa League spot in La Liga however and the Spanish club want their player to remain focused on the task in hand until the season has finished.
The Verdiblancos have jumped up to sixth in the Spanish top division after a 1-5 victory over Grenada on Friday helped them go above Valencia in the table.
Canas has played 126 times for Betis since making his debut for the club in 1997, but as an industrious defensive midfielder has managed just the one goal in that time.
The Spaniard has been a stalwart in the team this season playing 24 times in all competitions, but it now seems he is prepared to give up the green and white stripes for a shot at Premier League stardom.
