Swansea Boss Paul Clement is very satisfied with the new players signed over the transfer window this summer. A busy transfer deadline day that saw Renato Sanchez (Bayern Munich) and Wilfried Bony (Man City) join the Swansea City squad, with Fernando Llorente (Spurs) and Oli McBurnie (Barnsley, loan) departing.
“I think it has been really positive,’’ reflected Clement. “The make-up of the squad is moving in a really positive direction.
“With the addition of Renato and Wilfried on deadline day, it was a good day’s business for us.”
He was also sad to see Fernando Llorente go to Tottenham because of his importance to the team but he understood why he wanted to move.
“I really enjoyed working with Fernando. He was such a big player for the club in the one season he was here. His goals in the latter stages of the season were vital for us to remain in the Premier League.
“He will be missed by the players, staff and supporters, but I can understand why he would want to take the move at his age. He has fought his way back to a high level in the latter stages of his career and is joining a big football club.
