Defender Mike van der Hoorn would added some needed heighth to the Swansea back line.

While Wales continue to surprise on the international stage at Euro 2016, it's business as usual at club level. Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin is slowly re-shaping his squad, first allowing unsettled striker Alberto Paloschi to return to Italy and now making a move for Ajax defender Mike van der Hoorn, with the Dutch club and Swansea reportedly having finalised a deal for the 23-year-old. With only personal terms to work out between the player and club, the arrival of the centre-back is imminent.

Joe Allen and Wilfried Bony set for Swansea homecomings this summer?

Joe Allen
Former Swansea midfielder Joe Allen could return to the club this summer after four seasons in Liverpool.

Transfer business this summer is likely to be delayed for the month Euro 2016 is underway, as selling clubs hope to see their coveted participating players drive up their value, and buying clubs enjoy a month's bonus scouting.

Season in a sentence

A summer of complacency and questionable decisions almost cost Swansea their Premier League status, but in hiring Francesco Guidolin the board look to have restored their reputation for shrewd managerial appointments.

Amat and Britton are Swansea's best players but Guidolin is the real star

Swansea held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium and, with a difficult season now over, have good reason to be optimistic about the future.

In Francesco Guidolin, who recently signed a two-year contract extension with the club, the Swans have arguably their most tactically-sophisticated manager in the Premier League era.

The Italian's side routinely show the kind of tactical nuance that was absent from Garry Monk or Brendan Rodgers' versions of the team, and the prospect of a full...

Premier League season in a sentence as Leicester crowned champions

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reflects on the Premier League season.

It was another memorable Premier League campaign. Our ESPN FC bloggers take a quick look at how their team fared in the 2015-16 season.

LEICESTER: Leicester ended 2015-16 with a fairytale Premier League title, the PFA player of the year, a Premier League scoring record and Champions League football -- so not bad, then! -- Ben Jacobs

ARSENAL: Not good enough to sustain a title challenge but not bad enough to drop out of the top four -- stop me if you think you've heard this one before. --
