Forward Kristoffer Peterson joined Swansea City from Dutch club Heracles Almelo for an undisclosed fee in August 2019.

Born in Gothenburg, Peterson started his career with Savedalens IF before getting his big break with a move to Liverpool in 2011.

He worked his way through the ranks to the under-21 side, scoring six goals in 15 appearances during the 2013-14 season.

There was also a loan spell with Tranmere Rovers, and Peterson went on to be included in Brendan Rodgers’ first-team squad for much of pre-season during the summer of 2014, including making the cut for the tour of America.

He was sold to Dutch club Utrecht that same summer and went on to have a loan spell at Roda JC.

He joined Heracles in January 2017, and wasted little time making his mark with the Twente club.

He scored 23 goals in 81 league appearances for them and netted 12 goals in 33 appearances in 2018-19, including one against eventual Eredivisie champions Ajax.

His form earned him a first senior international cap for Sweden.

After 12 appearances at the Liberty, he joined FC Utrecht on loan for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
