Swans Seal Carroll Transfer

The Swans have raided Tottenham Hotspur for midfielder Tom Carroll who has declared that he is ready for action in his second spell at the club and could well be straight into the side at Liverpool on Saturday.
Carroll signed on a permanent deal yesterday for a non-disclosed fee that was rumoured to be £4.5m plus add ons in the press in the lead up to the signing.
He spent a season on loan here in 2014-15 under the charge of Garry Monk, scoring once in eighteen appearances and he hopes to make a greater impact this time around as we battle to retain our Premier League place.
“It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been here – there have been some changes – but I’m excited to be back,” said Carroll
“It definitely helps knowing quite a few of the lads from my loan spell, while I know (assistant coach) Nigel Gibbs and (head of physical performance) Karl Halabi too.
“Knowing the players and staff allows you to settle quicker than normal. It can take time to settle in at a new club, but having some familiar faces around the place will help me get going straight away.
“I know what the club is about too, and I know the playing style suits me so that was a big factor in me coming here.”
Carroll - like Martin Olsson - has signed a two and a half year deal
