Clucas joins Stoke

9th August
First team

Swansea City midfielder Sam Clucas has joined Stoke City for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

Clucas, who has signed a four-year deal at the bet365 Stadium, leaves the Swans less than a year after joining the club from Hull City.

Clucas departs having made 36 appearances – 27 of which were starts – for the Swans.

A versatile performer, he played on the left flank, in central midfield and on the left side of defence during his spell at the Liberty.

He scored three goals for the Swans, all of which came against Arsenal.

Clucas’s maiden Swans strike came in a 2-1 loss at the Emirates last October, and he then netted twice in the 3-1 home victory over the Gunners in January.

The 27-year-old had a knee operation in May, but is expected to be fully fit soon.

He joins a Stoke side who were relegated alongside the Swans from the Premier League last season.

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Sam for his service and wish him the best for the future.
