West Bromwich Albion are reportedly close to beating Leeds United to the signing of £3.5m-rated Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley.
Kyle Bartley's move to West Bromwich Albion is reportedly edging closer to completion following weeks of drawn-out talk regarding the Swansea City centre-back's future.
The 27-year-old has recently been touted as a target for fellow second-tier side Leeds United, with whom he has previously spent time on loan, after being made available to purchase for around £3.5m.
West Brom are the side leading the race to sign the Arsenal academy product, however, with The Telegraph indicating that the transfer is just days away from being completed.
Darren Moore has so far made one signing since being appointed by the Baggies on a permanent basis earlier this summer, bringing in Sam Johnstone from Manchester United for a fee of £6.5m.
Bartley will apparently follow close behind, having been restricted to just five Premier League appearances for Swansea in their relegation campaign last time out.
