Swansea City completed the signing of goalkeeper Ben Hamer from Huddersfield for an undisclosed fee in January 2021.

The 33-year-old put pen to paper on an 18-month contract at the Liberty Stadium, running through to the summer of 2022.

The experienced Hamer had made 17 appearances for the Terriers during the 2020-21 season before the move to South Wales, including their victory over the Swans in SA1.

He had also represented Reading, Crawley, Brentford, Exeter, Charlton, Leicester, Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Derby during his career.

He helped Brentford win the League Two title under the guidance of Swansea’s now head of recruitment Andy Scott, and was at Huddersfield at the same time as chief executive Julian Winter.

Hamer also helped Charlton seal the League One crown in 2012.

He failed to make an appearance for the Swans in his first season at the Liberty as the club reached the play-off final, but looks set to challenge Steven Benda for the no.1 spot in 2021-22.
