Cape Town - Swansea are close to completing their first off-season signing after agreeing a fee for Ajax defender Mike van der Hoorn.

According to reports in England, the 23-year-old Netherlands youth international is delighted to be moving to the Premier League and claims that "Swansea are a great club."

With nine goals and three assists in 77 Eredivisie appearances, Van der Hoorn comes with experience and will provide cover for first-choice pairing Ashley Williams and Federico Fernandez.
