Swansea and Middlesbrough are in talks to sign former Queens Park Rangers captain Grant Hall, Football Insider understands.
The 28-year-old is a free agent after he turned down a new deal at Loftus Road earlier this year.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that both Swansea and Middlesbrough have held talks with the player’s representatives over a summer move.
Hall ended a five-year association with QPR this month but looks set to remain in the Championship.
The centre-half made 30 appearances last season and scored an impressive five goals in a Mark Warburton side that finished 13th.
The Hoops boss could be starring at a summer exodus with Jordan Hugill returning to West Ham and Eberechi Eze attracting much interest from the Premier League.
Middlesbrough are in desperate need of a centre-back this summer after the long-serving Daniel Ayala left upon the expiration of his contract.
Hall, who can play at right-back and defensive midfield, is seen by Neil Warnock as the ideal replacement for the Spanish defender.
Swansea’s dreams of promotion were crushed last night as they lost 3-1 to Brentford having carried a 1-0 advantage from the first leg.
Swans boss Steve Cooper is firmly in the market for a centre-half this summer with Mike van der Hoorn out of contract.
The centre-back has before spoke of his want to play at the highest level and a summer exit from the Liberty Stadium could be on the cards.
Hall, who signed for Premier League side Spurs at the age of 20, would offer both clubs a wealth of experience at next to no fee.
