How Twitter reacted to Swansea City signing Sam Clucas from Hull City

Written by

Swansea City have completed the signing of Sam Clucas from Hull City. Sky Sports report that the deal could be worth up to £16.5 million and that the player joins on a four-year contract. Burnley had previously had a bid turned down for the midfielder, which shows that there was other interest for the Swans to overcome.

The versatile player did well during his one season in the Premier League and proved that he was good enough for this level. He featured in all but one of Hull’s matches and was one of their better performers during the campaign. Clucas will be a good option to have in the Swansea squad as he can play a number of positions including central midfield and left wing. The following quotes from the 26-year-old were posted on the club’s website.

“I’ve seen a lot of Swansea and one of the main reasons I decided to come here was because of the way they play football. I think it suits me.”

“I had a bitter sweet season last year with relegation. Because of my playing background, I never thought I would play in the Premier League so I relished every game I played. From the first time I kicked a ball in the Premier League it was a dream come true.”

The appeal of the Premier League was huge and Clucas was keen to remain in the league after a strong showing last season. Swansea have been known as a team that plays a good style and that makes them an attractive club to join. After selling Gylfi Sigurdsson, it was important to sign some new players and the midfielder arrives to help replace the Icelandic international. He is a different type of player, but he provides an option in the middle of the park and should prove to be a good addition.
