Swansea City Completes Club-Record Signing of Borja Baston from Atletico Madrid

Swansea, United Kingdom – Swansea City have completed the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Borja Baston for a club-record fee of 18 million euros, the club has confirmed.

The 23-year-old striker has penned down a four-year deal that will keep him at Liberty Stadium until 2021.

Baston replaces Ghana international Andre Ayew, who joined West Ham United for 23.8 million euros on Monday.

Baston becomes Swansea’s eighth signing of the summer and could prove healthy competition for fellow Spaniard Fernando Llorente who signed from Sevilla last Friday.

“There is pressure, but it is good pressure. I want to repay the transfer fee paid for me with good performances and results,” said Borja after being unveiled.
