Swansea City has completed the loan signing of Armstrong Oko-Flex from West Ham United, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old winger will spend the remainder of the 2022-23 season with the Swans, and has linked up with Russell Martin’s squad in time to be in contention for Wednesday’s Championship game against Stoke.

The England and Republic of Ireland age-grade international becomes Swansea City’s sixth signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Nathan Wood, Harry Darling, Matty Sorinola, Joe Allen and Luke Cundle.

Dublin-born Oko-Flex – who will wear the number 21 shirt for the Swans - started his youth career in his homeland, before moving to Arsenal after being spotted by Liam Brady.

Oko-Flex impressed for their under-23 side in Premier League 2, and was also involved in the matchday squad for a Premier League fixture at Arsenal in December 2021.
