Swansea City have signed winger Jefferson Montero to a four year contract after a transfer was agreed with Mexican club Morelia.

The Ecuadorian international, who started all three of their World Cup games, can play on either side of the wing and looks to be a replacement for the soon to be departing Pablo Hernandez. While held without a goal in the Cup, he has netted 8 timed for his country in 43 caps. He projects to be a regular sooner rather than later, so keep an eye on his price tag.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his move to Swansea from Tottenham.

Sigurdsson spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim and had an extremely successful spell, scoring seven goals, but the resulting move to Spurs never really worked out. He returns to the Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis as part of the deal that saw Ben Davies and Michel Vorm move in the opposite direction. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty under Garry Monk's stewardship.

Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has flown back from the club's pre-season training camp in Seattle ahead of a potential move to Swansea.

So after a week of rumours linking Sigurdsson to Crystal Palace after a fee was agreed, it appears the midfielder is returning to his former club Swansea. The 24-year-old is set to have a medical on Tuesday as part of a straight swap for Swansea's Wales full-back Ben Davies. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty if the transfer goes through.

Crystal Palace have agreed a fee for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, Sky sources understand.

Despite some good goals Sigurdsson has never settled at Spurs, finding the bloated midfield options difficult to navigate to allow him his fair share of first team football, and rumours of a move have grown stronger over the past 6 months. A return to former club Swansea had been suggested, but Sky Sports are reporting that Palace have agreed a fee of around £8million for the player and it would be a great coup for Tony Pulis. It would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty if the transfer goes through.

Aurelio DeLaurentiis, President of Napoli, has Tweeted out his official welcome to Michu who arrives in Italy after two uneven years at Swansea City.

The Spanish attacking midfielder's first season was hailed as one of the best bang-for-the-buck seasons in recent Premier League memory as the Swans got 18 goals in 35 PL appearances for a negligible transfer fee. Things went in the opposite direction last season as injury wrecked his sophomore season for the Swans and limited him to 2 goals in 17 appearances. The deal is reportedly an initial loan with an £8million payment in a year. Not ideal, but given how little he produced last season both clubs were always going to have to take some risk if a move were going to happen.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson's return to the club was discussed as part of a deal that could see defender Ben Davies go to Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite some good goals Sigurdsson has never settled at Spurs, finding the bloated midfield options difficult to navigate to allow him his fair share of first team football, and rumours of a move have grown stronger over the past 6 months. One would expect him to welcome a move back to Swansea - where he played the best football of his career - and this could help Spurs seal a deal for Ben Davies, who is reportedly Mauricio Pochettino's first choice to fill the left-back spot for the new season. However, a deal still sounds some way away, with swap deals notoriously complicated and with both clubs still haggling over the value of both players.

Club captain Ashley Williams has signed a new contract that will see him stay with Swansea City for another four years.

Williams has been a solid center back for the Welsh side, playing a major role in their promotion a few years back. He is the captain of the Wales national team as well, so it only makes sense that he would be happy to stay at Liberty Stadium. Rumors spoke of interest from Sunderland and Arsenal but Swansea is just the right fit and this deal will see his tenure with the club reach a full decade by contract's end.

Swansea City have signed French international striker Bafetimi Gomis to a four year contract.

Gomis can offer a viable replacement for Wilfried Bony should Bony move on to a bigger club. He is a few years older than Bony but still in his 20s so he is still in his prime. He arrives from Lyon where he scored 62 goals in 172 appearances over the course of five seasons, good for roughly 12 goals a season. While that kind of production may not live up to what Bony would offer, if Michu can have a bounce back season, the Swans may be a solid mid table side again.

Wilfried Bony scored a goal in Ivory Coast's 1-2 loss to Greece.

Bony's goal looked like it would do the trick for the Ivory Coast, as all they needed was a draw in this match to make it to the round of 16. That wasn't the case, as Greece were given a penalty in stoppage time that sent them through to the next round. The call for the penalty was questionable. Greece hadn't scored a goal in this tournament before today and they are going into the next round with a goal difference of negative two goals. No other team has qualified for the round of 16 in this World Cup with a negative goal difference. Greece face Costa Rica in the next round.

It's hard to imagine this one happening but Jonathan De Guzman has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United.

The Dutch midfielder has had some strong matches but he was hardly the stand-out player on a mediocre Swansea team over either of his seasons in Wales on loan. The power of Holland's 5-1 dismantling of Spain seems to be at work here. The problem is that De Guzman wasn't particularly effective in that match either and at 27, it isn't as if this would be an "upside" play for the future either. If this move does happen it will be nothing more than a fortification of the United bench with players that new manager Louis van Gaal is familiar with.

Ex-Chelsea star Didier Drogba's substitution into the match ignited a spark for what had been a dormant attack for the Ivory Coast and they proceeded to score twice in two minutes to defeat into a 2-1 victory.

Drogba did not score or assist either goal but his influence was felt and the resulting scores were no coincidence. Both headers were from crosses delivered by Ligue 1 phenom Serge Aurier, the first to Swansea City's Wilfried Bony, the next to ex-Arsenal winger Gervinho. Ivory Coast join Colombia with three points but the South American side have the goal difference on their side as they face each other next.

Sunderland have made an undisclosed bid for Swansea captain Ashley Williams, according to Sky sources.

Sunderland are short on central defenders, and Williams has just one year left on his contract at the Liberty Stadium. With no evidence of the 29-year old wanting to sign a new deal, Swansea might be tempted to cash in on him now rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Ashley Williams is a man in demand having been linked to QPR, Hull City and an extended contract at Swansea over the past three days.

The results of Swansea's poor season and another year of aging (he'll be 30 just after the season starts) can be seen in the names of the clubs Williams is being linked to this summer. Last summer, off of Swansea's cup victory and surprising overall season, he was linked with Arsenal and Liverpool. This summer, coming off a rough season, he has been linked with moves to Hull City, recently promoted QPR and a contract extension at Swansea.

In an odd move, Swansea have signed former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski on a free transfer after his contract at the Emirates ran out.

Fresh off the heels of his FA Cup win, Lukasz Fabianski was, in theory, looking for a club where he would be the likely starting goalkeeper. Given some of his performances this past season, it didn't seem an unreasonable goal either mid-table in the Premier League or elsewhere in Europe. It is unclear why he chose Swansea where Michel Vorm is a strong starter and Gerhart Tremmel is a solid back-up. Exactly where Fabianski fits in and why Swansea are spending scarce resources on a third goalkeeper is a bit of a mystery.
May 29 - 9:26 AM

Swansea have make it clear to potential suitors that Michu is not for sale this summer.

It isn't clear exactly who might be interested in the Spanish attacking midfielder after what was essentially a lost season due to injuries and subsequent ineffectiveness. Arsenal and Liverpool were mentioned in the rumor but it seems likely that both will have their sites set higher than a player who struggled so mightily last season. It seems more likely that Arsenal would target Wilfried Bony than Michu given their numbers in midfield vs. the lack of same at forward.
