Leeds United are heavily interested in signing the 26-year-old ace, but could face strong competition from Glasgow Rangers.
The Yorkshire club expected Swansea to hold on to Bartley, following their relegation from the Premier League, but fresh reports suggest that they are willing to listen to offers for him.
Phil Hay reports that United consider Bartley as a major summer transfer target after he impressed during his loan spell at Elland Road.
He was brilliant for Leeds during the 2016-17 campaign that earned him a new four-year deal at Swansea. However, knee surgery prevented him from playing regularly this season, and now Swansea are looking to sell him.
Leeds fans took to Twitter to express their reaction on the report. While some want the club to sign him at the earliest, there are others who are skeptical about the move given his previous injury record.
Fingers crossed ?

Would be a dream to get bartley back along side the magic hat

Yeh, they probably do! Kyle Bartley would be an excellent addition. But it seems because he picked up an injury a few months back…some fans think it’s pointless. He’s a pro, working with professional physio’s etc, he will recovers!

If he goes to rangers it is for the money and not for football reasons
