Swansea have completed the signing of Trinidad & Tobago defender Radanfah Abu Bakr on a short-term deal.

The 22-year-old centre-back, who has had two trials with the Swans in the last two years, has signed a three-month deal after being granted a work permit.

Abu Bakr, who has five international caps, told the club's official website: "I am absolutely ecstatic to get my chance here and can't wait to get going."

He added: "The move happened quite quickly but I'm really looking forward to the challenge."

The former Caledonia AIA man is determined to convince Swans boss Paulo Sousa he is worthy of a contract extension to run beyond the initial three months.
