Swansea City sign goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt from Heerenveen
23rd June 2015
Swedish international goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt has joined Swansea City after completing his move from Dutch side Heerenveen for an undisclosed fee.
Nordfeldt, who turned 26 today, has signed a three-year contract after undergoing a successful medical.
The five-cap international will compete with Lukasz Fabianski for the goalkeeper position at the Liberty, with the Swans having seen Gerhard Tremmel and David Cornell leave the club this summer.
Nordfeldt becomes Garry Monk's third signing this month, with forward Andre Ayew and left-back Franck Tabanou having bolstered the squad following their moves from Marseille and St Etienne.
Nordfeldt started his career with Brommapojkarna, for whom he made well over 100 appearances in both the Swedish top flight and second tier.
His impressive performances caught the attention of a number of clubs around Europe, with Nordfeldt joining Dutch top-flight club Heerenveen in 2012.
He featured over 100 times for De Superfriezen, helping them reach the Eredivisie play-offs for Europa League qualification in each of his three seasons at the club.
