Confirmed: Long term Swansea City target Luc Castaignos finally moves on, joins Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt

The Dutch striker has been linked with a move to South Wales the last two summers.

Over the past couple of years one name has become synonymous with transfer rumours at Swansea City. That name, is Luc Castaignos.

The Dutchman has often been linked with a move to The Liberty Stadium.

In May, the BBC claimed that Swansea were tracking the FC Twente striker. In fact, Swans chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed the interest to the BBC, stating:

"Castaignos is just one of a number of players we've been looking at of late."

A year earlier and again he was linked. The BBC again reported the news, claiming Swansea had a bid accepted for the player. In the end they signed Bafetimbi Gomis.

His name is forever cropping up during a slow news week for Swansea City so Swans fans will be happy to hear that a deal has finally been done, just not with Swansea.

Castaignos has finally made a long awaited move away from cash-strapped Twente and signed with German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. The deal has been ratified and the German club confirmed the news on their official website this week. The 22-year-old has signed a four-year deal with The Eagles.

Castaignos, who has previously played for Feyenoord and Inter Milan, can finally stop being the go-to transfer rumour for Swansea.

At least, that is, for now.
