Swansea accept Fulham's Jazz Richards bid

HITC Sport understands Fulham have had a bid for Swansea and Wales defender Jazz Richards accepted.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that Swansea City have accepted an offer from Fulham for defender Jazz Richards.

As revealed by HITC Sport last month, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers had made enquiries for Richards, but now Fulham are in pole position to land the full-back after agreeing a fee for his services.

Richards enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Fulham last season, making 14 appearances at Craven Cottage, and Kit Symons had made him one of his top targets this summer.

Symons is looking to rebuild his squad at Fulham after a difficult first campaign in charge with the club just narrowly avoiding relegation.

The 24-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Swansea and the Welsh club are ready to let Richards move on.

Richards is keen to find a new club as he looks to be playing regular first-team football after finding himself behind the likes of Kyle Naughton and Angel Rangel at the Liberty Stadium.
