OFFICIAL: Swansea City acquire Fernandez

Premier League side Swansea have officially signed Argentina and Napoli defender Federico Fernandez for 10M

The Jacks announced the signing via the club’s official website today, seeing the 25 year old pen a 4 year contract in Wales. The new face voices the swan’s ambitions of obtaining a top half finish this season.

The World Cup finalist replaces the Lekhwiya-bound Chico Flores, who joined former manager Michael Laudrup at the red knights.

The Ex Estudiantes centre back spoke to the official website:

“It has always been my dream to play in the Premier League – it is the best in the world. I asked Michu and Jordi Amat about the club. I obviously trained with Michu at Napoli and while I was on loan at Getafe (in 2013) I played with Alvaro Vazquez. He is very good friends with Jordi, so I’ve spoken to them too. Michu told me it is a family club and the city is very relaxed. He said I was joining a very good club. All I’ve heard are good things about Swansea.”

Federico Fernandez appeared 36 times for Napoli in all competitions last season.
