Swansea complete signing of 19 year-old Biabi

Swansea have completed the signing of Falkirk striker Botti Biabi.

The Swans announced on their official website that 19-year-old Biabi has agreed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

London-born Biabi will link up with the club's under-21 squad.

He has represented Scotland at under-19 level and helped Falkirk reach the Scottish Cup final last season, when he went on as a second-half substitute during a 2-1 defeat against Inverness.

Biabi becomes the Swans' third signing from Falkirk during the last 18 months, following Jay Fulton and Stephen Kingsley to the Liberty Stadium.

"I am excited to join because this is a big club," Biabi told www.swanseacity.net. "Obviously, Stephen and Jay arrived here from Falkirk, so that will help me settle into the club.

"I have spoken to them both, and they've made me feel very welcome.

"I've seen Jay play in big games for the first team in the Premier League and cup, and I would like to follow in their footsteps."

Blackburn sign Swansea forward on emergency loan

Blackburn Rovers have signed Swansea striker Modou Barrow on an emergency loan deal until November 10th, subject to international clearance.

The forward spent time on loan with Nottingham Forest earlier this season, and has been granted permission to play in Blackburn's League Cup tie against Shrewsbury this week.

Barrow, 22, joined Swansea from Ostersunds in August 2014, and has never scored a league goal in England.

Starting line-ups: Chelsea v Swansea

Former Arsenal stopper agrees four year Swansea deal

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has signed a new four-year contract, the club have announced.

Fabianski has been rewarded for an excellent first season at Swansea, keeping 13 clean sheets following his free transfer from Arsenal last summer.

The 30-year-old Poland international had attracted interest from Serie A giants Roma but Swansea have moved quickly to tie him down to a new deal.

"It's protection for the club because players like him are assets, but the way I look at it is players sign these new deals because they have earned them and deserve them," Swansea manager Garry Monk said ahead of his side's Premier League opener at Chelsea on Saturday.

Monk admits reports of interest in the defender from Crystal Palace is nothing new as the centre-back has been linked with various clubs every summer.

For that reason the Swans boss is not worried about the Wales international's immediate future.

He told talkSPORT:

Ash will be here, he'll be here with Swansea. I've got a good relationship with him, he's our captain and obviously I played with him for many years as well.

For the past six or seven years he's been linked with a team in the summer, and whether that's actual interest or driven by the papers and agents, I don't know.

But Ash is very committed to the club, he's our captain and he's captain of Wales as well, it's a big year for him with (Euro 2016) qualification coming up with his country.
