Napoli and Swansea City are in talks over the transfer of the Spanish striker Michu on a season-long loan. Michu has not travelled with Swansea to the United States for their pre-season tour.

Bahia International, the company that represents Michu, confirmed on Wednesday that the clubs are in negotiations with a view to Michu joining Napoli on a one-season loan deal.

Michu moved to Swansea from Rayo Vallecano in a £2.2m deal in the summer of 2012 and was the club’s top scorer with 22 goals in his first season.
