On this day: Dyer signs for Swans

2nd June 2018

Nathan Dyer joined Swansea City from Southampton on this day in 2009.

The young winger had impressed having originally signed on loan from the Saints in January 2009.

He made 21 appearances and scored three goals while on loan, and that contribution convinced the Swans to stump up £400,000 to secure a permanent deal.

That proved to be money well spent.

Dyer was player of the season in 2010-11 as the Swans sealed promotion to the Premier League, and continued to thrive at the top level.

Now 30, he has racked up a total of 311 Swans appearances and 34 goals to date.
