Swansea have signed highly-regarded left-back Neil Taylor on a three-year deal from Wrexham.

The 21-year-old is out of contract at the Racecourse Ground although Swans are currently discussing a compensation fee with the Dragons as Taylor is under the age of 24. The Wales international, whose switch remains subject to a medical, is due to link up with his new team-mates when they return to training on Friday.

He told City`s official website: "I`m delighted. I think I`ve been linked with the move since Christmas, which is a long time. I`ve tried to concentrate on my football with Wrexham but Swansea has obviously been on my mind, especially when I`ve linked up with the Swansea lads on Wales duty."

He added: "The club has proved they are willing to give young Welsh players a chance in the first team. There is a great Welsh connection here and the stadium looks fantastic."
