Swansea sign striker meaning that Ngog interest is dead

Ian Walton

The one Bolton Wanderers- related rumor that we have seen thus far today looks all but dead at the moment. Yesterday, Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup confirmed that the Swans were looking to bring in one striker on deadline day, having been linked with "six or seven names." One of those names was that of Bolton's David Ngog in what would have been a cut-price move for the striker in the last year of his contract.

The Swans have completed the signing of that one striker, bringing in Getafe's Alvaro Vazquez on a season-long loan deal (with a reported £1 million fee just to loan the player, via the Daily Mail). The 22-year-old striker will compete for time with Michu and Wilfried Bony for playing time, of which there will be plenty to go around. Laudrup had said he was keen to boost his options with Swansea playing in the Europa League as well as the Premier League and any domestic cup competitions.

It's all gone quiet on the Bolton front.
