Donnelly thrilled with Swansea move

Former Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly is thrilled with his move to Swansea City.

The 19-year-old's move will be officially completed once the necessary paperwork is processed when the transfer window opens on January 1, and he is set to join up with his new team-mates next week.

The teenager said: "Everything has happened so quickly that I still can't quite believe it. It's a dream come true.

"I was really impressed with what the manager had to say when I met him. He couldn't have done anything more to impress me.

"I believe I am signing for a brilliant manager who is prepared to give youth a chance. I also met the likes of Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen when I was over here last week and it only reinforced the belief that Swansea is the right club for me.

"I know there was serious interest from Everton and Liverpool, but I love the way Swansea play the game and I think it will suit me.

"The manager has told me there is no pressure on me because I am only 19. In time there will be pressure, but not right now.

"He has shown a lot of faith in me and, hopefully, in time I can repay him with plenty of goals."
