Swansea City have completed the signing of Tottenham and England full-back, Kyle Naughton according to Sky Sports.

Swansea manager, Garry Monk says he is delighted with his new signing, “Kyle’s experienced at this level and brings Premier League pedigree.

“He’s a good age for us, and we look for players who want to prove a point and are hungry to do well. These players don’t always become available but the signing is testament to the club and how far we’ve come and what we’re trying to do.

“Kyle enjoyed his time at Tottenham but he didn’t have the amount of games he wanted. But he will add quality with the other full-backs we’ve got and I’m looking for Kyle to push on and stake a claim for the starting XI.”

Meanwhile, Naughton insisted the lure of first team football was too good to turn down, “I’m pleased it’s all done because there has been talk since the summer over a potential move,” Naughton said.

“I’m sad to be leaving Spurs because it’s a great club. I was there quite a while and the lads are a great bunch.

“My main aim is to start playing regular football again. I know it’s going to be a tough challenge because there are some very good players here, but that’s my goal.

“I just want to settle into life at Swansea and try to play regularly. It all comes down to playing football – after all, that’s my job.”

With the money from Bony’s transfer helping to fund such a transfer, will the Welsh outfit look to add to their squad?
