Swansea Warm Up

Eder becomes Swansea City's fourth signing of the summer after joining from Portuguese outfit Braga.

Swansea today confirmed the signing of Portugal international striker Eder on a long-term contract from Braga, for a fee believed to be in the region of £5 million - as per BBC Sport

Having already secured the services of Ghana forward Andre Ayew from Marseille, French defender Franck Tabanou from St Etienne and Swedish goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt from Dutch side Heerenveen, Eder becomes the Welsh outfit's fourth signing of the summer window.

Swans manager Garry Monk had been looking to sign another forward before the start of the 2015-16 Premier League season - with the view of building on last term's impressive eighth place finish - and in Eder he has found his man. The 27-year-old scored 10 goals in 29 league appearances for Braga in 2014-15.

Speaking to the club's official website, Eder revealed that progression was key for his career after completing his move to the Liberty Stadium, while he is relishing the challenge of the Premier League.

He said: “I am very happy to have signed with Swansea. It’s a big club and I believe I can progress as a footballer here. The Premier League will be a step up for me, but I’ve played in the European competitions and also for my country so I’ve experienced different levels of the game."

Meanwhile, Monk was delighted to secure the Portuguese striker’s services.

He said: “Eder is the type of striker we’ve been looking for. He has excellent attributes; strong, quick and technically sound with the ball.

"He has a good pedigree and is a full international with Portugal. He fits our profile in terms of the players we’ve signed in the last two seasons because he’s young, hungry and eager to prove himself in the Premier League."
