A number of Swansea City supporters have been reacting to the latest report from Topmercato that the Swans are close to securing a deal for OH Leuven forward Thomas Henry.
The forward has enjoyed a prolific campaign in Belgium and he managed to fire in an impressive tally of 21 goals in his 31 league appearances. That suggests he could be a player that is capable of making a move to a higher level and potentially thriving in a league like the Championship.
Swansea are going to need a new forward this summer, having confirmed within their retained list that Andre Ayew is leaving the club at the end of his current deal.
It is being reported by Topmercato that the Swans are close to agreeing personal terms with the forward as they aim to lure him to the Liberty Stadium this summer.
While the same report also does outline that the two clubs are yet to come to an agreement in terms of the transfer fee that it would take for him to make the move to the Liberty Stadium. Although talks are thought to be ongoing.
21 things every Swansea City fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?
Many Swansea fans were quick to suggest that this is exactly the sort of move the club should be aiming to make this summer as they aim to go again after missing out on promotion.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions on social media…
Can't pretend to know much about this Thomas Henry we are apparently close to signing. 41 goals in two seasons isnt to shabby. Better goal scoring than some of the tripe we have bought over the years. 6ft 4 so could be perfect for the rough and tumble of the championship.

Sounds to me like Thomas Henry is getting closer to signing for us. I don’t speak French but I like what I hear. He sounds absolutely perfect for what we need having bagged 21 in 31 last season in the Belgian top flight. Like how we are thinking outside the box #swans 🦢
