Swansea City sign Portugal striker Eder from Braga
1st July 2015
Swansea City have completed the signing of Portuguese international striker Eder from Braga for an undisclosed fee.
The 27-year-old has penned a three-year deal after completing a successful medical over the weekend.
His arrival will boost Garry Monk's attacking options, which already includes Bafe Gomis and summer signing Andre Ayew.
Eder, who was born in Guinea-Bissau but moved to Portugal as a child, scored ten goals in 29 appearances for Braga last season as they finished fourth in the top flight, while he was also in target in the club's domestic cup final defeat to Sporting Lisbon.
He began his senior career in the lower leagues with Oliveira Hospital and Tourizense before joining Académica in 2008, with whom he won the club's first Portuguese cup for 73 years.
His performances caught the attention of a number of European clubs, but he opted to join fellow Primeira Liga side Braga in 2012.
The 18-cap striker played in all three of Portugal's World Cup games in Brazil last year as his nation went out at the group stage, while he scored his first international goal in a 1-0 win over Italy earlier last week.
Eder, who will wear squad number 17 for the 2015-16 campaign, becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer as he follows Ayew, Franck Tabanou and Kristoffer Nordfeldt to the Liberty.
