Swans complete Demetriou signing
29th August 2014
Swansea City have completed the signing of highly-rated Nottingham Forest striker James Demetriou on a free transfer.
The 19-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at the Liberty Stadium after his contract at Forest expired and will link up with the club's Under-21 squad.
Born in Australia, Demetriou is a Cyprus Under-21 international and arrived in England from Sydney Olympic last year.
"It's great to be here," he said. "It has taken a long time to get sorted but it feels good and I just want to get my head down now and focus on the season ahead.
"Swansea are a Premier League club, they play a great brand of football and they are a team that gives young players an opportunity.
"My short-term aim is get game time and try to score as many goals as I can, but long-term I want to break into the first-team here and impress the manager."
