Sparta Rotterdam is emerging as a transfer target for Premier League Swansea in what looks like being a busy final week of transfer activity at the Boro.
The high-flying Swans are poised to sell flying flanker Scott Sinclair to Champions Manchester City for pounds 6m.

Emnes is still part of Mowbray's plans, although he did not entirely rule out an exit for the former Sparta Rotterdam star if the price is right.
