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

Donnelly: Swansea Move A Dream Come True

New striker signing Rory Donnelly says it's a dream come true to join Swansea City.

The Northern Irish youngster couldn't hide his delight to pose for pictures holding up a Swans top as he was officially unveiled at the Liberty Stadium as the club's newest signing - putting pen to paper on a three and a half year contract.

The move will go through as soon as the transfer window opens on January 1st 2012.

Donnelly attracted interest from Merseyside clubs Everton and Liverpool but Donnelly revealed that manager Brendan Rodgers - also Northern Irish - helped convince him that this was the right club to help improve his career:

'Everything has happened so quickly that I still can't quite believe it,'' explained Donnelly. 'It's a dream come true.

'I was really impressed with what the manager had to say when I met him. He couldn't have done anything more to impress me.

'I believe I am signing for a brilliant manager who is prepared to give youth a chance. I also met the likes of Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen when I was over here last week and it only reinforced the belief that Swansea is the right club for me.

'I know there was serious interest from Everton and Liverpool, but I love the way Swansea play the game and I think it will suit me.

'The manager has told me there is no pressure on me because I am only 19. In time there will be pressure, but not right now.

'He has shown a lot of faith in me and, hopefully, in time I can repay him with plenty of goals.''


Vital Swansea would like to welcome Rory Donnelly to Swansea City Football Club and of course we wish him the very best, as the young striker hopes to deliver with plenty of goals in the near future.
