Wednesday 08 June 2011
Swansea City are signing Watford striker Danny Graham for a club record £3.5m fee. The 25-year-old Graham was the top scorer in the Championship last year with 24 goals and has agreed a four-year contract at the Liberty Stadium.
"He is a player we have admired for quite some time and as a club we are delighted to get our man," said Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins.
Gateshead-born Graham, who was signed by Watford from Carlisle United, will undergo his medical and complete the deal when he returns from holiday. Jenkins also confirmed the club have received an offer from Newcastle for Neil Taylor.
