8th August 2014
Swansea City have bolstered their Academy ranks with the signing of Adnan Maric and Daniel James.
The pair completed their moves to the Liberty Stadium this week and will now link up with the club's Under-18s squad ahead of the new season.
Maric, a Swedish Under-17 international, arrives from GAIS in his homeland while 16-year-old midfielder James has joined from Hull City and is a Wales Under-17 international.
"I'm really looking forward to getting started here," said James. "The facilities are first class and it blew me away a little when I first came down here.
"I want to become a better player, keep improving and hopefully eventually break into the first team."
Maric, meanwhile, is a highly-rated central midfielder and spent time on trial at the Academy last season.
The 17-year-old has penned a two-year professional deal with the club and admits he can't wait to start a new chapter in his career.
"I'm really looking forward to this opportunity," he said. "I think it will be a good season and a great experience for me.
"Before I came here I didn't know too much about the club's history, but now I'm learning all the time.
"It takes time to get used to everything but the facilities here are brilliant and I can't wait to get going."
