Kevin Amankwaah and Thomas Butler have both passed medicals and agreed terms with the Swans to finalise their moves to the Liberty Stadium.

Thanks to co-operation from both selling clubs and the FAW, both players are available to play in tomorrow’s friendly against Exeter.

Vital Swansea understand that we are paying around £235,000 for Amankwaah and £35,000 for Butler.

Chairman Huw Jenkins said: “We’ve been working hard on these signings and I’m pleased to say Swansea City now has two more quality players in its squad,”

“Butler is a player with great attacking potential who is determined to kick-start his career again after losing his way a bit since leaving Sunderland.

“And in Amankwaah we have a strong, committed player who can not only defend well but also loves to go forward.

“Kenny (Jackett) is delighted with the signings and feels both players will prove huge assets to the club.”
