Brendan Rodgers says Kemy Agustien will make the same impact as Scott Sinclair after he finally completed a free transfer to Swansea City.
Scott Sinclair couldn't have made a bigger impact at the Liberty Stadium since joining from Chelsea having scored 8 goals in 9 games - including a hatrick against Peterborough United in the Carling Cup.
Kemy Agustien is a completely different type of midfielder than the pacey and skilful winger. The 24 year-old was able to slot into the team with ease during the Holland Tour back in July and he performed well in all 3 games. The Dutchman worked well alongside Pratley and he'll certainly add some much needed strength into our midfield. He's also very composed in possession and also not afraid of shooting from distance - he scored an excellent goal in his second friendly match during his trial.
Brendan Rodgers says he's delighted to have signed him:
'What we have in Kemy is a very talented footballer who will slot into the beliefs and footballing strategy of this club,'
'I'm delighted he is with us because he will bring a lot to our group.
'He was impressive during the Holland tour and it was unfortunate that he picked up an injury. But now he can concentrate on contributing to the group and help take us forward.
'He will make the same impact as Scotty, but in a different way. He possesses a lot of quality.'
Rodgers also added that he's been very pleased with the spirit amongst the players, and how they've welcomed him into the team:
'The spirit in this group is fantastic,'
'Kemy has said that he was surprised by the reception he received from the squad.
'That's the way it is here. The players have been speaking to him throughout the time since he first joined up with us, and Garry Monk and Ashley Williams have been regularly on the phone and texting him.
'So Kemy knows he is in very good hands.'
