Falkirk striker Botti Biabi delighted to join Swansea City
17th August 2015
Botti Biabi revealed he's hoping to follow in the footsteps of two of his former Falkirk team-mates after completing his move to Swansea City.
The striker reunites with Stephen Kingsley and Jay Fulton at the Liberty, with the pair having arrived from the Scottish club last year.
Biabi, who helped Falkirk reach the Scottish Cup Final last year, has signed a three-year deal with the Swans for an undisclosed fee subject to international clearance.
His arrival will bolster the firepower in the club's under-21 side, although he won't feature in tonight's game at Brighton.
And the Scottish Under-19 international is hoping to make a similar impact as Kingsley and Fulton, with the latter featuring in games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Southampton last season.
"I am excited to join because this is a big club," said Biabi. "Obviously Stephen and Jay arrived here from Falkirk, so that will help me settle into the club.
"I've spoken to them both and they've made feel very welcome.
"I've seen Jay play in big games for the first team in the Premier League and cup, and I would like to follow in their footsteps."
Biabi, who is from South London but moved to Glasgow aged 13, first joined Clydebank before a successful trial with Falkirk saw him sign his first pro contract with the Bairns.
He made 32 appearances for Falkirk - 31 last season - and came off the bench in the Scottish Cup Final in May as Inverness won 2-1 at Hampden Park.
