Swansea confirm signing of Borja Baston for £15.5m

Swansea have confirmed the signing of Borja Baston for £15.5m from Atletico Madrid, subject to international clearance.
Sources revealed the two clubs had agreed the deal on Tuesday, with the 23-year-old becoming Swansea’s record signing.

Borja, who will wear Swansea’s number 10 shirt, spoke about the excitement and pressure of joining Swansea.

“There is pressure, but it is good pressure,” acknowledges Borja.

“I want to repay the transfer fee paid for me with good performances and results. Hopefully I can score a lot of goals.

“It is the most important decision of my career. I want to settle and spend several years here. I am very happy to be here. I am eager to contribute to the success of the team.”

Baston is the second forward to arrive in the space of a week after Fernando Llorente joined on a two-year deal from Sevilla on Friday.
