Swansea confirm signing of Fabianski from Gunners
Swansea City have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianksi from Arsenal on a four year deal.
The Polish stopper was a free agent from 1 July, leaving him free to speak to other clubs.
Fabianksi played his last game for the Gunners against Hull at Wembley earlier this month in the FA Cup final and ends a seven year spell in north London.
He will be remembered for his key contribution to this season’s FA Cup success, particularly his penalty heroics in the semi-final win over Wigan.
The 29-year-old has signed a deal to keep him with the south Wales club until 2018 and leaves Arsenal needing to step up their search for back-up keeper.
The Gunners have been linked with John Ruddy of Norwich City and David Marshall of Cardiff City as possible replacements.
John Ruddy has been left out of England’s World Cup squad for Brazil and with Norwich City having been relegated is sure to want an immediate switch to a Premier League club to boost his chances of re-gaining his place in the England squad for the Euro qualifiers.
Whilst David Marshall had an impressive Premier League debut season, despite Cardiff City’s relegation.
