Swansea City has completed the signing of Morgan Whittaker for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old forward joins from Derby County and has put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half year contract at the Liberty Stadium.

Whittaker will be available for Friday’s fixture against Championship leaders Norwich, and is also able to feature in the FA Cup clash with Manchester City as he didn’t feature for Derby in the competition.

He adds to Steve Cooper’s forward options following injuries to Liam Cullen and Wayne Routledge.

Whittaker is a product of the Rams academy, and has been capped by England at age-grade level from under-16 to under-20.

He made his professional debut for Derby in August 2019, and he has gone on to make 32 first-team appearances, with 11 of those coming this season.
