Marco Silva’s reshaping of Fulham’s squad will continue next week as Swansea skipper Matt Grimes heads to London for a medical ahead of a proposed move to Craven Cottage.

The decision of Swansea’s board to cash in Grimes as the influential midfielder entered the final year of his contract at the Liberty Stadium is thought to be one of the reasons for manager Steve Cooper’s departure last week. The Daily Mail tonight reports that the Welsh side have agreed a fee – believed to be in the region of £4m – with Fulham for the classy midfielder.

Grimes has attracted interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Southampton and Bournemouth after becoming one of the Championship’s most consistent performers. It appears as though Fulham have won the race for his signature with a medical scheduled for next week. The former England under-21 international midfielder, who came through the Exeter City academy, has scored eight goals in 157 appearances during his six years in south Wales.
