Paul Clement made his first signing as Swansea manager with the acquisition of Luciano Narsingh from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven for a reported fee of £4m.

26 year old Narsingh has played in Eredivisie for his entire career and has achieved his dream by signing to the English Premier League.
Quoted by The Guardian, he said:
“It is a dream to come true playing in the Premier League, playing for a big club like Swansea, it was not difficult to think about it. PSV was good for me, but I think it was time to leave.”
Swansea fans will have to wait to see their man with a minor injury ruling him out of the weekend’s action against Arsenal.
It’s an exciting signing for the Liberty Stadium faithful. Narsingh is a Dutch international, scoring 4 goals in 16 appearances for Oranje, the latest coming in a friendly against England last May.
He’s sure to add some badly needed attacking threat to their side with a massive relegation fight looming.
Swans fans took to Twitter to share their delight at the signing.
We've got a good player there in Narsingh, and for a great price, so for the first time in a long time, well done Swans board! ????????????????

Instructions to Narsingh 'see that white line over there, take the ball to it then see that big Spanish bloke, toss it up on his head'

Swans clearly copying my Football manager transfer policy with Luciano Narsingh. Very exciting signing though. Plenty of pace and creativity

Narsingh is a good signing for Swansea! Definitely still need to sign a centre half at the very least though!

Chuffed with the Narsingh signing! If he's as quick as he is on FIFA should be good! ????
