Swansea City have today completed a deal for 25 year old, Argentinian defender, Federico Fernandez from Napoli, in a deal believed to be valued at £8million.
Fernandez, who played 4 games for Argentina at this summers World Cup, has joined the Premier League club on a four-year contract, replacing Chico Flores in the Swansea defence.
Swansea Manager, Gary Monk said,
He brings that pedigree where he’s been playing for Napoli at the top level and for Argentina at the World Cup.
The age that he’s at is very good for us and the type of player that he is.
He’s a good size, a very good footballer and someone who will suit Swansea City.
The type of players that we try and identify to come in here are ones that add quality to the squad and he definitely will do that.
After defeating Manchester United in their opening game, Swansea fans will be hoping that Fernandez will be fit enough to start against Burnley at the weekend after only just returning to training.
