PSV confirm Joel Piroe is a Swansea City player

PSV Eindhoven have this morning confirmed that Joel Piroe is a Swansea City player. As we reported on receiving the news two weeks ago a fee was agreed between PSV and Swansea City enabling his transfer on July 1st.
Piroe who was on loan at Sparta last season signs as a goal scoring option for the swans. However he has only scored theee goals in the past two seasons over twenty six games. This will concern swans fans as the fee, albeit currently undisclosed is around a million euros. Swansea need a goal scorer hence their attention being turned to Thomas Henry in recent times and the exciting news that Erkan Kara is keen to join the club. None of these transactions have taken place.
The swans are clearly happy to spend this amount of money on a player who throughout his career has hardly set the goal scoring world alight. More in the Jamal Lowe vein than an out and out striker, swans fans will be hoping this still leaves the door open for another top signing. And one who has a history of goal scoring. Hereâ€™s hoping it is the right move for all of us.
