New Swansea recruit Kyle Bartley has revealed the similar footballing ethos promoted by the club was the main reason behind his decision to move to the Liberty Stadium from Arsenal.

He became new Swansea manager Michael Laudrup's fourth summer signing, after Spanish pair Michu and Chico were joined by Villarreal loanee Jonathan de Guzman, and he reckons the similar philosophies of his new club and Arsenal made the decision an easy one.

"I had my education at Arsenal and I do like to play football and play it out from the back and watching Swansea last year that is exactly what they have done so that is a massive thing for me joining Swansea," he told Swans Player.
