Swansea City have finally concluded the deal that will bring the French youth international Darnel Situ to the Liberty Stadium.

The 19-year-old actually agreed a two-year deal from Lens in the summer transfer window alongside Algerian international Rafik Halliche, but FIFA prevented both deals on the grounds that they weren't concluded prior to September 1st.

Situ, who operates at centre back, hasn't been allowed to participate on match days, and has trained with the Swans as part of an initial loan deal following the international clearance issue, but now he can put that behind him.

Situ's arrival in South Wales has spelled the end for another in Greek international Vangelis Moras, who has been released after managing just five minutes in Swansea's away trip to Wolves.

Manager Brendan Rodgers, who has added Gylfi Sigurdsson and Rory Donnelly so far this transfer window, has prioritised swift transfer activity.

He said: "Any of our business we'll do early on, and it shouldn't go on more than that."

Rodgers is also hoping to shortly conclude the loan deal for Chelsea's Josh McEachran, after working closely with the youngster, during his time at the West London club's youth set-up.
