Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is hoping to add Ashley Williams to his squad after tabling a bid for the defender.
Press Association Sport understands thee Black Cats have made Swansea an offer in the region of £4million for the 29-year-old, who is yet to agree a new deal at the Liberty Stadium.
Williams has a year left on his current contract, and could leave for free next summer.
Poyet is currently reshaping the squad at the Stadium of Light with West Brom defender Billy Jones and Wigan midfielder Jordi Gomez already on board following the departures of Phil Bardsley and Craig Gardner.
In addition, Sebastian Larsson has agreed a new three-year contract, although fellow midfielder Jack Colback's future remains uncertain with derby rivals Newcastle among his suitors.
