Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson is set to undergo a medical at Fulham on Tuesday in a transfer that could cost the new Premier League side up £20m.

The defender has been expected to leave the Welsh side following their relegation to the Championship last season.

West Ham had a bid turned down for the player last month and have since cooled their interest, while Burnley remain keen to sign the 24-year-old and have an offer still on the table. However Mawson would prefer a move to a London, where he grew up.

Mawson is recovering from an operation on his knee in May but is on the verge of returning to full training having played in every Premier League match for Swansea last season.

His form earned him a call-up to the England squad for the friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy in March and though he is still yet to win his first cap, he had been in contention to travel to the World Cup before his surgery ruled him out of Gareth Southgate’s plans.

Having started his career at Brentford, before joining Barnsley, Mawson moved to Swansea for £5m in 2016 and became a key part of the squad, while he has been capped six times at England Under-21 level.

The Welsh club accepted that he was likely to depart after they failed to retain their Premier League status.
