Luciano Narsingh eyes Swansea City debut
29th January 2017
Luciano Narsingh hopes to get the Premier League chance he has long craved when Swansea City host Southampton on Tuesday night.
Narsingh arrived at the Liberty from PSV Eindhoven earlier this month but is yet to make his debut after picking up a calf problem in his final days in Holland.
Having joined full training this week, the Dutch international has fingers crossed that he will see some action when the Saints visit in midweek.
Speaking to Jack Magazine, Narsingh explains how he fought back from being told he was not big enough to make it as a professional footballer by his boyhood club to establish himself as a Dutch international.
And having seen a number of team-mates from his homeland make the move to English football, the 26-year-old is thrilled to have arrived on these shores.
"I have been waiting for the chance to come over and play in the Premier League," Narsingh says.
"It's a great time for me now that I am here. I always wanted to play in the Premier League, and when Swansea came in for me, I knew I wanted to play for Swansea.
"I have known about Swansea for a long time. There have been a lot of Dutch players here, for example Jonathan de Guzman who I know.
"I have known for a long time that Swansea want to play good football. That appealed to me. I felt this was the right moment for me to come."
