Swansea City’s new record signing Borja Baston gave his thoughts on his move to South Wales
Swansea City’s new record signing Borja Baston gave his thoughts on his move to South Wales.
The 23 year-old striker arrives from Atletico Madrid for a £15.5m fee, which beats the former £12m record paid for Wilfried Bony.
Borja says he wants to settle at Swansea, and spend ‘several years’ at his new club, after a number of loan spells in recent seasons.
“There is pressure, but it is good pressure,”
“I want to repay the transfer fee paid for me with good performances and results.
“It`s difficult to set a target of goals, but my mantra is take it goal by goal. Hopefully I can score a lot of goals.
“It is the most important decision of my career. I want to settle and spend several years here.
“I am very happy to be here. I am eager to contribute to the success of the team.”
“There has been a lot of success with Spanish players here. I hope to do the same for Swansea,”
“I played with Jordi in the youth levels with Spain. He is a very good player and it will be great to be in the same team as him again.
“It is great for me to have Spanish players in the team, but I want to learn English as quickly as possible to integrate into the team and get to know my team-mates.”
“I would love to play this Saturday, but I will have to speak to the manager to see if he wants me to be involved.”
