Swansea City Sign Striker Shefki Kuqi

Swansea City Sign Striker Shefki Kuqi

Swansea City have strengthened their squad this week with the free signing of Shefki Kuqi on an 18-month deal.

The 33 year-old striker, currently playing for German Division 2 side Koblenz, has been a target for the Swans for the last few months, but last week it looked like the deal was off because of money demands, until both parties came to an agreement.

The move is a free transfer but chairman Huw Jenkins revealed recently that the player's agent was demanding extra fees to process the transfer, which Swansea City weren't willing to agree to pay.

However, Kuqi has signed an 18-month contract at the Liberty Stadium and he told the Official Site that he can't wait to get going:

'I'm moving to a club that is doing really well,'

'I had a good game at the Liberty Stadium for Crystal Palace last season and scored one of the goals. Hopefully this will be a lucky ground for me.

'I know Swansea like to play the game the right way and whether they play one or two up front I don't mind. I like to put myself about and I can't wait to get started. I'm buzzing.

'I missed out in the play-offs with Ipswich on two occasions, so I'm sure this will be third time lucky for me.'

We don't have a physical striker until now. Goal scorers are difficult to find. It will be interesting to see if the Manager will change the formation in order to score more goals?
