New Swansea City signing Luciano Narsingh revealed football, Fer and fine timing were all key components behind his move to the club.

The Dutch international completed his move to the Liberty Stadium from Eredivisie club PSV Eindhoven today for £4million.

Narsingh has penned a two-and-half-year deal with the Swans and becomes head coach Paul Clement's first signing since taking over at the club.

The 26-year-old spoke with Holland team-mate and current Swans midfielder Leroy Fer before his move to SA1, with that conversation enough to make his mind up to end his four-year spell at PSV.

And he added Swansea's style, along with him entering the prime age in his career, were big factors in his decision to join Clement's side.

"I talked to Leroy before I came here and he told me it is a good club with great team-mates and fantastic supporters," said Narsingh, who set the Eredivisie record of 22 assists in 2012.

"It helped me a lot in making a decision, so it was easy for me to say yes to Swansea.

"I've looked at the Premier League for two or three years now, and Swansea always play good football.

"That's why when Swansea came in for me I knew I wanted to play here.

"This is the best league, and with Swansea playing good football I knew it was a good club for me.

"I'm 26 now and it's a good age to come to the Premier League. I won two titles in Holland, so it is a great time to come here."

Narsingh's arrival bolsters Clement's options out wide, particularly as he's comfortable playing on either wing.

The Swans boss also has Modou Barrow, Wayne Routledge, Jefferson Montero and Nathan Dyer vying for a place on the flanks.

While Narsingh won't feature in Saturday's Premier League home clash with Arsenal due to a slight calf problem, he is confident the Swans will lift themselves out of the Premier League danger zone.

"I know the team is low down in the table, but we have the quality to move up the table," added Narsingh, who will wear squad number 28. "I believe in Swansea and that we will be alright.

"I am looking forward to playing here. I will do my best and give everything in every game. I hope to become an important player for the team."
