Swansea City have completed the signing of Nico Defreitas-Hansen from Everton on a free transfer.
The 19-year-old has been at Goodison Park for the past three years, although his game time came for the Toffees development sides in that period. As well as playing for the Premier League side, Defreitas-Hansen has also represented USA and Denmark at youth international level.
However, he is on the move now, with the Swans announcing the arrival of the stopper on their official site this afternoon, with Defreitas-Hansen signing an initial one-year deal, with the club having the option to extend it by 12 months.
The teenager is initially set to join up with the U23 side, but he will hope to force his way into the XI down the line.

Glad we getting signing in for the youth setup, but what a tease that was. Thought we signed someone for first team then

No matter how unpredictable the world can sometimes seem, there's comfort to be found in the consistency of the Swans always signing a new keeper https://t.co/pCMnZaMVGL
