Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly is poised to move to Swansea after the Reds accepted an increased bid from the Premier League club.

Swansea originally tabled an offer of £100,000 for the exciting 19-year-old.

Donnelly will now discuss personal terms with the Welsh club and he is expected to complete the switch in the January transfer window.

Tuesday night's League Cup defeat by Coleraine is likely to have been Donnelly's last game for the club.

Scouts from English and Scottish clubs have watched Donnelly in recent weeks, with League One side Brentford also making a bid for the teenager.

"There are a lot of talented players in Northern Ireland and he's one of them," said Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers last week.
