Jonathan De Guzman has completed his move from Villarreal to Napoli for an undisclosed fee.
Napoli confirmed the signing of the Dutch international after the 26-year-old completed a medical; he has signed a four-year-deal with the Italian giants.
Upon his arrival at Napoli's training ground, De Guzman said of the club, "I am happy to have come to Napoli. I can't wait to start."
The news will come as a blow to several Premier League sides, including QPR, who were thought to be interested in signing the former Swansea playmaker.
QPR manager, Harry Redknapp, confirmed earlier in the week that he had made several enquires for the player this summer.
However, Napoli's Champions League status is sure to have been a major factor in De Guzman's choice of move. Redknapp can now focus all his attention on securing deals for De Guzman's Dutch compatriot, Leroy Fer and Chile's, Eduardo Vargas.
Good EPL record
De Guzman scored nine goals in 71 Premier League appearances for Swansea. He was part of the Swansea's League cup winning squad in the 2012-2013 season. He was also part of Holland's recent 2014 World Cup Squad and he helped his nation to a third place finish.
Napoli have today also announced the departure of 27-year-old Argentinian Centre Back, Federico Fernandez who has signed for Premier League side, Swansea City, in an £8 million pound deal. Swansea manager, Gary Monk, has said of defender, "He brings that pedigree where he's been playing for Napoli at the top level and for Argentina at the World Cup."
