Clement says Clucas will offer Swansea versatility after the midfielder completed his £15m move from Hull.
Clement also remains keen to bring in more signings before the transfer window closes.
He said: “[Clucas] is a good footballer and that is what we want here. The fact he can play in so many positions reinforces that he is a good footballer.
"This is the first one [signing] in the latter parts of the window and hopefully we can do a couple more."
