Swansea manager Gary Monk has revealed that a deal has been agreed with Napoli over the potential transfer of defender Federico Fernandez to the club this summer.

The 25-year-old had a great spell with Argentine national side as they reached the finals of the World Cup in Brazil.

The Welsh outfit had been associated with an £8m move for the talented defender in recent weeks, and Monk had now confirmed that the deal is close, but will not be finalized in time for Saturday's opening league encounter at Manchester United.

Swansea have already completed the signing of Lukasz Fabianski, Bafetimbi Gomis, Marvin Emnes, Stephen Kingsley, Jefferson Montero and Gylfi Sigurdsson this summer.
