Swansea City have secured their second signing of the Summer with the arrival of Wrexham left back Neil Taylor.
The 21 year-old has signed a three-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, subject to a medical, and although he's out of contract, Swansea City ill need to discuss a compensation package with fellow Welsh side Wrexham.
Taylor was first linked with a move to the Swans at the end of last year when speculation grew that we were targeting the highly-rated Welshman.
Taylor recently said that he would 'love' to join the club, and after putting pen to paper, he told the Official Site:
'I think I've been linked with the move since Christmas, which is a long time.
'I've tried to concentrate on my football with Wrexham, but Swansea has obviously been on my mind, especially when I've linked up with the Swansea lads on Wales duty.
'I've spoken in length to the likes of Joe Allen, Shaun MacDonald, Jazz Richards, David Cornell, Casey Thomas, David Cotterill and Ashley Williams. They've had nothing but good things to say about the club.
'Not that I needed much persuasion because every time I've seen Swansea they play some great football. It's exciting to be part of it and I'm looking forward to learning off a manager like Paulo Sousa, who has done it all as a player.
'The club has proved they are willing to give young Welsh players a chance in the first team. There is a great Welsh connection here and the stadium looks fantastic.
'I can't wait to get started. I realise it's a step up from League Two and the Conference, but I am confident of doing well in the Championship.
'I've enjoyed my time at Wrexham and I will be sad to leave a club I love. Everyone at the club has been brilliant to me and I will be eternally grateful to them, especially the fans.''
Some fans have been critical of the club and our transfer dealings so far this Summer. They've been disappointed with the lack of activity, the loss of two first team players plus the signings of two very young Lower league players.
Of course, everyone wants to hear big name players joining us but we just can't compete against a lot of other clubs in this League with much bigger wage and transfer fee budgets. Not only that, but a lot of other clubs can attract more players because of their recent Premier League history, which acts as extra pulling power to their targeted players.
