Swansea City winger Joel Asoro has completed a season-long loan move to Italian club Genoa, subject to international clearance.

The Sweden international will link up with the Serie A side – who finished 17th in the top-flight last term – for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.

The deal includes an option for Genoa to buy Asoro at the conclusion of his loan spell.

Asoro, 21, joined the Swans from Sunderland in the summer of 2018 and has made 18 appearances for the club, the most recent of which came in the Carabao Cup defeat to Newport.

He spent last season on loan with FC Groningen in Holland, scoring twice in 15 outings for the Eredivisie side.

Everyone at Swansea City wishes Joel every success in his time in Italy.
