Fer, 29, has been impressive for Swansea this season, having stayed with the club following their relegation from the Premier League last term.
The midfielder’s contract will expire at the end of this season, however, and the above sources have claimed that Lille could sign him before the end of the week.

There is absolutely no question that his exit at this stage would be a blow.
And the Swansea fans have been on social media urging their club to keep hold of the Netherlands international.
Indeed, Swansea are only six points off the playoff positions in the Championship.
If the Welsh outfit are to challenge for the top six this term then surely they need to keep hold of their captain beyond the end of the January window.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Swansea fans can be seen below:

Also if we lose James, potentially Fer although I can’t see Fer going, how frustrating will that be.. leaving it late then for replacements and I guarantee you we won’t even see anyone come through the doors #swans

If @SwansOfficial sell either Daniel James or Leroy Fer, I honestly think Swans fans should boycott the next home match in protest. Those moves will show how the owners have absolutely no ambition for the club #swans #DeadlineDay #protest #yanksout

Really should do every thing in our power to keep Fer

If they both leave imsupporting a different club, Fer is literally the best player in the league.
