'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tremmel 'Delighted' To Join Swansea City

Trialist goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel says he is 'delighted' to have been offered and sign a contract at Swansea City.

The german shot stopper impressed the management staff at the club enough to earn a two year contract at the Liberty Stadium.

The 32 year-old increases the goalkeeper tally in the squad to four, but David Cornell is currently on loan at Hereford United.

Tremmel played in a number of pre-season friendlies and he put in some solid displays against the likes of Celtic and Real Betis.

After putting pen to paper, Tremmel shared his reaction at signing with the official site:

'I'm delighted to be here as a Swansea player,'

'I've been with the club for quite a while on trial, and I already felt a part of the squad as everyone here has been so welcoming. It is a family club.

'I have also had the chance to see how the team gets on in the Premier League, and I've been impressed with what I've seen.

'But I've got a big challenge ahead of me. Of course, I have to be patient because Michel has been playing very well and Jose is also pushing to play.

'However, I feel I have good experience to share from my time playing in the Bundesliga, and that could help us this season.

'But first I need to get my chance, which I will work hard for and I will also be patient.

'I'm just looking forward to getting started officially as a Swansea player.'


Tremmel has been impressed with the club so far, he added:

'When I arrived here on trial, I thought 'this is not a normal club.'

By that I mean the players and coaches were so brave in their approach,'

'They weren't worrying about the massive challenge of the Premier League, they just wanted to play the style in which they believe in.

'How many teams go into the Premier League and do that? Not many.

'But here the attitude is to play the right way - keeping the ball and playing it from the keeper, which is great to be a part of. I am a goalkeeper that likes to involved in the way the team plays, and Salzburg played in a similar way to Swansea, so it is not difficult for me to fit in.

'I've always wanted to play in the Premier League for the style and the atmosphere the fans create.

'I can't wait to be a part of that.'
