Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski join Swansea City on free transfer

Swansea have announced the signing of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski on a free transfer.

Fabianski’s contract at Arsenal expires at the end of June and Swansea have swooped to sign the Polish international on a four-year deal.

The 29-year-old, who spent seven years at Arsenal, featured in the FA Cup final win over Hull but shortly afterwards announced his plans to leave the Emirates.
“Swansea City are pleased to announce the club’s first summer signing with the arrival of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski from Arsenal,” a statement on the Swansea website read.
Fabianski struggled to bed down a regular place in the Arsenal team with manager Arsene Wenger preferring Jens Lehmann, Manuel Almunia and Wojciech Szczesny.

It remains to be seen if he will become the number one at the Liberty Stadium with Michel Vorm linked with a summer move.
“I am very happy with the move, the decision and the club,” Fabianski said. “I’m very excited for the coming season and the coming years.

“It will be a big honour to represent Swansea City. Everyone interested in football knows that Swansea is a proper football club. The way they play football is nice to watch and they have always been an exciting team.

“Based on what the club has achieved in the three previous seasons in the Premier League, you can clearly see that year upon year the club is moving forward.

“The club represents good values and the style of football is something that I would like to be a part of.

“I know quite a bit about them already, but I am sure I will get to know quite a bit more in the coming months. For me, it was an easy decision to make to join the club.”
