Cork has been linked with the Swans for a while now and the midfielder says he has always been a fan of the club and he looks forward to trying to break into the starting 11.
"Swansea are a good footballing team, they've been really successful over the last couple of years," he explained.
"A bit like Southampton, they've come up through the divisions and established themselves as a Premier League football club.
"It's a team I've always admired and for me to try and play in this team is a bit of privilege.
"They've got a large core of British players and a manager who's hungry to do well.
"So in the end it was quite an easy choice. I'm just looking forward to getting in with the lads and trying to get some game time."
