​Liverpool's Indian-origin Under-23 youngster, Yan Dhanda, is on the verge of completing his move to Swansea City, as per ​BBC


​The forward, who plays for the Reds' U-23 side, signed a two-and-a-half year deal back in December 2015, becoming the first player of Indian heritage to play for them. 


Dhanda, who moved to the ​Premier League side's academy from West Bromwich Albion in July 2013, signed professional terms with the club in 2015 and had since been playing for their Under-23 side. 



Born in Birmingham, the 19-year-old's contract with the Merseyside outfit comes to an end in the summer and the forward has been working on a move to the Welsh club, as they look to get a jump on life in the Championship after getting relegated from the Premier League. 


Once a member of England's U-17 team, he won the award in the up-and-coming player category at the Asian Football Awards in 2013. Ironically, he had also scored against the Swans while playing for Liverpool's U-23 side. 



The teenager has done well for the Reds, having scored the last-minute winner as they defeated Manchester City. He also grabbed a brace as his side thrashed Chelsea 5-1. 


Though he was offered fresh terms by Liverpool, as per ​Goal, Yan Dhanda rejected the offer and decided to move in search of more first-team opportunities. He is expected to cost Swansea £100,000.
