Swans sign Montero

first_img The 24-year-old winger, who started all three of Ecuador’s group games against France, Switzerland and Honduras during the World Cup in Brazil, has agreed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee. Montero went straight into training with the Swans on Thursday after passing a medical. He has moved to the Liberty Stadium from Mexican club Morelia. Swansea have announced the signing of Ecuador international Jefferson Montero. Press Associationcenter_img He becomes Swansea’s latest new signing of a busy summer, quickly following Gylfi Sigurdsson, whose move from Spurs was confirmed on Wednesday, while other new arrivals have included ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and former Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis. Montero previously played for Villareal, and he lined up against Swansea while on loan at Real Betis in a friendly three years ago. The Swans, meanwhile, have confirmed Alejandro Pozuelo’s Liberty Stadium departure to join Primera Division side Rayo Vallecano. Swansea said on their official website that midfielder Pozuelo had signed for an undisclosed fee. The 22-year-old Spaniard moved to Wales from Real Betis last summer, but he has not featured for the Barclays Premier League club in recent months. He signed a three-year deal with the Swans, having been recruited by current manager Garry Monk’s predecessor Michael Laudrup. Pozuelo made 36 appearances and scored two goals, but he last played for Swansea when they took on Europa League opponents Napoli in February. Pozuelo’s new club posted a picture of him holding a Rayo Vallecano shirt on their official Twitter account on Thursday. last_img read more
