Monk hails Tabanou's quality
20th June 2015
Garry Monk feels new signing Franck Tabanou has all the right attributes to help Swansea City push on next season.
The Swans clinched their second summer signing with the arrival of left-back Tabanou, who will compete with Neil Taylor for the left-back position.
Tabanou signed a three-year deal following his transfer from St Etienne on Friday, and Monk feels his latest acquisition will help the Swans build on their record-breaking campaign in 2014-15.
"It's an excellent signing that I'm looking forward to working with individually and as part of the group," said the Swans boss, who has already added Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew to his squad.
"He is exactly the type of player we are looking for. He's young, talented and looking to make the next step up in his career.
"He has the right attributes to fit in here and increase the competition and quality in the squad.
"He's come from a good club and is an exciting talent that I'm sure the supporters will enjoy watching."
Swans are the 'perfect match' for Tabanou
