According to BBC Sport, Swansea City and Newcastle United remain in talks over a deal for Federico Fernandez after the Swans rejected a £3million bid – but The Sun claim a £6million agreement is in place.
The Magpies tied up signing number six on Monday by landing striker Salomon Rondon on loan from West Bromwich Albion, following Martin Dubravka, Fabian Schar, Ki Sung-yueng, Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto to St James' Park.
Newcastle remain in the market for new signings in the final stages of transfer deadline day, and a new centre back is wanted given that Florian Lejeune has suffered a major injury.
Now, BBC Sport report that Newcastle remain in talks with Swansea City over a deal for Federico Fernandez, after a £3million bid was rejected by the Championship club.
However, The Sun report that Newcastle have now doubled their bid to £6million, and that offer has now been accepted as the defender seemingly nears at move to St James' Park.
The 29-year-old hasn't been keen to stay in the Championship following Swansea's relegation, and could return to the top flight with Newcastle after making 117 Premier League appearances since joining Swansea from Napoli in 2014.
Fernandez played under Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez at Napoli and now looks set to reunite with the Spaniard at St James' Park, even though Benitez did sanction his exit in 2014.
A move for Fernandez may suggest that a work permit for Barcelona defender Marlon Santos may not be sanctioned, and Fernandez could be the top target instead as a result.
