Swansea City have confirmed that Kyle Joseph will join the club from Wigan once the deal has been approved.
🤝 Swansea City has agreed the transfer of @Kyle9Joseph from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee, subject to EFL, FAW and FA clearance.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a real breakthrough campaign with the Latics, scoring five goals in 18 games and impressing with his overall ability.
Such form caught the eye, with Celtic, Rangers and Tottenham just some of the clubs who had been linked with the teenager over the past few months. However, it’s the Swans who have won the race for Joseph, with the club announcing his arrival this afternoon.
There will be an expectancy for the forward to play a big role for Steve Cooper’s side next season and long-term, so it’s fair to say that this signing has gone down well with the support, particularly as the Swans are short on options up top following Andre Ayew’s exit.
