​DONE DEAL: Swansea beat elite competition to sign Gladbach youngster Wolf

Swansea City have signed Borussia Monchengladbach youngster Hannes Wolf on loan for the remainder of this season.

Swans boss Russell Martin revealed the Championship outfit beat off competition from some of Europe's top leagues.

Martin said: "It's a really exciting one. After speaking to Hannes, we were put on the radar by his agent who likes the style of play here.

"He said it's probably unlikely because of the player's pedigree, but he said he might be available.

"Somehow the deal has been made to happen, which is great. Financially it's not outside what we can do.

"He's someone else who has had to sacrifice money to be here. It's a place he wants to play football and that's the importance of having clarity of a style on the pitch.

"It happened at our previous club (MK Dons). Players came who we probably weren't in the market for like Scott Twine.

"I think with the amount of competition we beat off, from top leagues across Europe, I'm really excited by it."
