Swansea City have been very active in the January transfer window already and today they confirmed their second signing of the month.
Following Andy Fisher – the MK Dons goalkeeper who signed on Tuesday – through the door is Republic of Ireland international Cyrus Christie.
He arrives on a loan deal from Fulham for the rest of the season, having only made one appearance for the Cottagers this season in the EFL Cup.
Quiz: Can you name which club Swansea City signed these 28 midfielders from?
Russell Martin needed a replacement for Ethan Laird, who was recalled by Manchester United earlier in the month – only to be sent back out on loan to Swansea’s league rivals in high-flying Bournemouth.
He’s now found the man to fill Laird’s shoes in the form of Christie, who was a regular for Nottingham Forest last season, featuring 44 times in the Championship.
The 29-year-old could not force his way into Marco Silva’s plans though at Craven Cottage as he found Kenny Tete and Denis Odoi in-front of him, paving the way for his exit.
Whilst he doesn’t possess Laird’s youthfulness, Christie does have a ton of experience at Championship and international level and Swansea fans seem to be pleased in regards to this signing – let’s see what they are saying on social media.

Said yesterday when the deal was apparently dead that I think he’d be good for us. Suits the role and brings a good amount of experience, particularly at this level. Pleased with this one #swans 🦢 https://t.co/6qA5263kgi
