Swansea have completed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, who joins the Swans for £5million on a four-year deal.
Having been given the chance to impress in the early stages of last season, the 21-year-old had fallen down the pecking order at Anfield and after the two clubs agreed a fee, a deal was concluded quickly.
It was originally thought a loan move may have been in the pipeline, but Liverpool are happy to sell and Shelvey is happy to move after realising first-team opportunities at Anfield would be few and far between next season.
Shelvey travelled to south Wales on Wednesday, agreeing personal terms and completing a medical, before putting pen to paper.
"Liverpool Football Club have confirmed Jonjo Shelvey has completed a transfer to Swansea City," said a Reds statement.
"Everybody at Liverpool FC would like to wish Jonjo all the best for the future."
