Swansea City have finalised the signing of Ecuadorian winger Jefferson Montero from Mexican side Morelia, according to Sky Sports.
Montero signed on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee after completing a medical with the Welsh club. The 24-year-old player grabbed the attention of a few clubs after playing well for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Ins and outs
And now he will be playing Premier League football next season alongside players such as Ashley Williams and Wilfried Bony.
The Swans boss Garry Monk has been very busy so far this summer, as Montero was the club’s sixth signing this window. He follows Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bafetimbi Gomis, Marvin Emnes, Lukasz Fabianski and Stephen Kingsley to the Liberty Stadium.
However, there have been a few crucial exits from the club so far, with Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Alejandro Pozuelo all leaving the side for Tottenham and Rayo Vallecano respectively.
Swansea moving forward
Monk, a former Swansea player and captain himself, has addressed problem areas in the squad with a creative midfielder a left back, a goalkeeper and a trio of forwards coming in. Montero will want to prove he has the quality to progress at Swansea, with many other high quality players to compliment his style of play.
The winger has now met up with the Swans squad as they begin to ready themselves for their pre-season with a game against Plymouth Argyle on Sunday. Then it’s back to a new season for Swansea as they have the honour of being the first fixture of the 2014/15 campaign away at Manchester United.
