Martin Olsson

df 3 17 11
  • Date of birth: 17/01/1988
  • Height: 5ft 10ins
  • Weight: 12st 10lb

Swedish international Olsson joined the Swans in January 2017, becoming the club’s second signing following the appointment of Paul Clement as head coach earlier in the month.

Olsson, who signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with an option for another season, reunited with Clement after previously working with him at Blackburn Rovers.

The left-back spent six years at Ewood Park before moving to Norwich City in 2013, and went on to make 129 appearances for the Canaries.

Olsson loves to get forward whenever possible, and can be a useful attacking weapon – as proved in his early months a Swan.

He made an immediate impact in the white shirt, helping Clement’s side chalk up a famous win on debut at Liverpool and scoring vital goals against Leicester and Burnley.

On the international stage, Olsson made his Sweden debut back in 2010, and played for his national side at Euro 2012 and Euro 2016.

He has scored five goals at international level and netted 10 times in a total of 270 appearances for Blackburn and Norwich.
