Roque Mesa’s short spell at Swansea City could come to an end soon, if claims from Spain are to be believed.
Paul Clement, the former Swans manager signed the 29-year-old for the Welsh club from Las Palmas last summer. Clement was shown the exit door in the middle of last season and Mesa was allowed to join Sevilla on loan in January.
When Swansea allowed their player to join Sevilla on loan, they included a buyout option. The midfielder played 342 minutes in the La Liga in the second half of the last campaign.
Diario de Sevilla today reports that Mesa is set to become Sevilla’s first signing of the summer transfer window.
The Andalusian outfit will exercise that option to sign Mesa on a permanent deal, but there’s a catch.
Sevilla have already agreed personal terms with Mesa and “everything is agreed” with the English club for the transfer to go through. The initial price agreed between the two clubs was €7m, and the Spanish side are trying to lower the fee since Swansea were relegated from the Premier League.
The report claims only “some details” are remaining now for Mesa’s move from Swansea to Sevilla on a permanent transfer is made official. Those details will likely be around how much Sevilla can get off the price.
