Swansea complete deal for Napoli's Fernandez

Swansea City have completed the signing of Argentina defender Federico Fernandez from Italian side Napoli for a reported £8m. Swans boss Gary Monk said the 25 year old, who made 13 appearances on loan at Spanish club Getafe last season, is a good acquisition for the club.

"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."
