David's delight at Swans switch
27th January 2014
New Swansea City striker David Ngog revealed his "delight" in returning to the Premier League, having finalised his move to South Wales today.
The 24-year-old striker became the Swans' first signing of this month's transfer window, arriving from Bolton Wanderers for an undisclosed fee.
Speaking to Swans TV after putting pen-to-paper on a six-month contract, the French forward believes his move to the Swans is a great opportunity for him.
"It's a delight for me," said Ngog. "I think Swansea are a very good club. They have shown over the last couple of years that they are a good Premier League side.
"I want to help the team win games and improve in the Premier League. If I can bring my quality to the team, I will be delighted.
"Swansea are a team who like to keep the ball and play good football. I will try to introduce myself to the team and to adapt.
"The manager [Michael Laudrup] was obviously a top player and as a manager he has proven he is very good as well. It will be really interesting to work with him.
"Overall, it's a really good opportunity for me, and I am glad to be here."
The former Paris Saint-Germain academy graduate also revealed that he spoke to former Swan Darren Pratley ahead of his move to the Premier League club.
Ngog played with Pratley during his time with Bolton and added that his former team-mate had only good things to say about the club.
He added: "He told me a lot about this place. He said he was really happy here, that this was a really good club and that he had a good time.
"It was good to hear that from him."
