'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Graham agrees Swans move

Danny Graham has joined Swansea City for £3.5m subject to undergoing a medical.

Watford will also receive a 15% sell-on fee should Graham leave Brendan Rodgers' newly-promoted side.

Bids of £2.5m from Queens Park Rangers and West Bromwich Albion had previously been dismissed but the Hornet's accepted Swansea's offer yesterday.

Graham arrived from Carlisle United in 2009 for a fee of 200k after the two clubs went to tribunal.

In his first season the former Middlesbrough trainee bagged 14 goals having suffered a couple of lengthy goal droughts.

However, the 2010/11 season brought Graham's best-ever career haul with 27 league and cup strikes making him the Championship's top-scorer. He also won the club's 'Player of the Season' award and was named in the 'PFA Team of the Season' and the 'PFA Championship Player of the Season'.

It was inevitable that Graham would leave but he's richly deserved his move having dropped out the Premier League in order to further his career by playing regular football lower down the Football League pyramid.

In total Danny struck 41 goals in 87 league starts and a further 11 substitute appearances.

Good luck Danny and thanks for the memories!
