Swansea City have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur star Kyle Naughton for an estimated £5million fee, with the player penning a three-and-a-half year deal, Skysports reports.
The 26-year-old agreed a deal with the two clubs on Tuesday, and following his completed medical, the defender’s move has now been confirmed by Garry Monk.
He said: “Kyle’s experienced at this level and brings Premier League pedigree.
“Kyle enjoyed his time at Tottenham but he didn’t have the amount of games he wanted. But he will add quality with the other full-backs we’ve got and I’m looking for Kyle to push on and stake a claim for the starting XI.”
Naughton made a transfer to White Hart Lane back in 2009, but was continuously loaned out on more than one occasion with Middlesbrough, Leicester City, and Norwich City all destinations within the past three seasons.
The English full back also revealed that he was sad to leave Spurs, but his decision was based on his limited playing time as he now looks earn a more regular role at his new club.
“I’m sad to be leaving Spurs because it’s a great club. I was there quite a while and the lads are a great bunch.
“My main aim is to start playing regular football again. I know it’s going to be a tough challenge because there are some very good players here, but that’s my goal.”
Ahead of the switch to the Liberty Stadium, he was also linked with a move to Leicester as well as Crystal Palace, but finally decided to join Monk’s squad.
