Versatile Hearts teenager Adam King is expected to join Swansea City before the transfer deadline after undergoing a medical ahead of a move to the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City seem poised to sign Adam King after the Hearts teenager reportedly underwent a medical.

The versatile 18-year-old has only made two league appearances in Scotland, but has apparently been on Michael Laudrup's radar for some time.

The Swans first pursued King, who can play in midfield and defence, in the summer but the administrators at financially-troubled Hearts rejected their bid.

However, Sky Sports News understands that the Swans have now got their man, with King spotted in South Wales on Monday, finalising the details of his move to the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea have already added French striker David Ngog to their squad in this transfer window.
