Swansea City defender Jordi Amat is close to sealing a move away from the Liberty Stadium, according to reports in Spain.

The reports claim that La Liga side Real Betis are close to securing the services of Amat, who doesn’t seem fancied by Swans boss Paul Clement.

The 25-year-old centre-back joined the Welsh outfit in the summer of 2013 under Michael Laudrup and impressed during his maiden season, featuring regularly in Swansea’s 2013/14 Europa League campaign.

However, he’s never manage to cement a spot as a starting centre-half during his four years as a Swan, never making more than 20 appearances in a single season.

Amat is now being tipped to complete his move back to Spain, having previously turned out for Espanyol and Rayo Vallecano in his homeland.

Betis are looking to strengthen their squad after a 15th placed finish in the Spanish top-flight last term, already capturing Sergio Leon, Christian Tello and Victor Camarasa to try and do just that.
