Sheffield United winger David Cotterill has completed a £600,000 move to Swansea City, signing a three-and-a-half deal at the Liberty Stadium.

The 22 year-old joined the Swans initially on loan in November with a view to making the move permanent in this month’s transfer window.

The Welsh International has struggled to nail down a regular first team place at Sheffield United, starting just 3 games for the Blades this season.

He’s had a slow start to his Swansea City career but it hasn’t taken him long to show his ability, having scored a 30-yard cracker in last Saturday’s FA Cup defeat away at Leicester City.

Cotterill told BBC Sport:

‘I’m delighted its all finalised,’

‘As far as I’m concerned I’ve joined the best footballing side in the Championship.

‘I’ve come here to play football and I aim to keep working hard, get myself in the starting XI on a regular basis and chip in with a few more goals.

‘It’s not going to be easy because there are some good players here and the team is doing well.

‘But I hope to stay here for a long time and help the club move on. There is no reason why we can’t finish in the top six this season.’
